The-Political-Economy-of-Social-Problems2

In his “fighting” book, Social Problems published nearly a decade after Progress & Poverty, Henry George argued that the unequal distribution of wealth is the fundamental problem that defines and shapes all other social problems faced by modern societies. He saw in monopoly and, in particular land monopoly the driving force behind wealth inequality and economic injustice. This course will walk us through George’s framework and ask whether his diagnosis of the key social problem was accurate then and now, and most importantly, discuss whether his recipe for economic prosperity and social justice is still relevant today.

Instructor: Dr. Ibrahima Drame

Time: 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM

    Understanding our Political Economy

    This course explains the fundamental relations between the factors of production utilized in the process of wealth creation and the natural laws that govern its distribution. We will use the interdisciplinary approach employed by Henry George in his writings to provide cohesive, evidence-based insights into why economies experience cycles of boom and bust. Additionally, the course will explain why societies continue to experience generational poverty and what measures can be adopted to bring these problems to an end.

    The instructor, Edward J. Dodson is a retired banker, former director and long time faculty member of the Henry George School of Social Science.
