PRINCIPLES OF POLITICAL ECONOMY Session 5

 In Defense of Justice – The Quest for a Fair Society

The purpose of this 5-session course is to offer a basic introduction to political economy in the tradition of Henry George as presented in his book Progress and Poverty.

We will introduce the key concepts, axioms and fundamental laws of the discipline and use this understanding to analyze and explain economic issues in the real world. We will also examine the causes of poverty and discuss George’s unique approach to the problem. Additional issues such as the alternating cycles of boom and bust that are so characteristic of capitalist economies will be also discussed.

LAND VALUE CAPTURE: THEORY AND PRACTICE
Session 2

Public infrastructure has long played an instrumental role in the growth of our cities and largely accounts for the observed increase in land values. And yet, our funding mechanisms have failed to tap into this vast source of publicly created wealth, allowing it to be pocketed by private landlords. In this 5-session course, Dr. Marty Rowland traces the theory of Land Value Capture back to the work of Henry George and discusses its potential for driving the rebirth of our cities.
