PRINCIPLES OF POLITICAL ECONOMY
Join us as we re-discover the laws of political economy and discuss their potential for guiding policy toward shared prosperity.
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 some 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.
