SAINTS AND DEMAGOGUES – SOCIAL REFORMERS THROUGH THE LENS OF HENRY GEORGE

This course compares and contrasts the ideas of six intellectual luminaries, primarily from the late 19th/early 20th centuries with those of Henry George. These include, Huey P. Long, William Jennings Bryan, Thorstein Veblen, Allyn Abbott Young, Friedrich Hayek, and John Cary.

Join us in examining the work of these influential thinkers and see where they stand on George’s unique proposal for the “free” provision of infrastructure services that we all need to prosper – humans and corporations alike.
