Functions of Government and the Potential of Localism


Henry George believed that the functions of government should be restricted to those necessary to the common welfare. In our highly integrated and interdependent economy, what are those functions? What level of government can best undertake each function? Drawing on Social Problems by Henry George, and The State in the Third Millennium by Prince Hans-Adam II of Liechtenstein, we consider the functions of government, and the potential for decentralization, direct democracy, and localism.
