LAND VALUE CAPTURE: THEORY AND PRACTICE
Session 4

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.
