Macroeconomic Implications of Georgist Theories

Most people think “economics” is measured by national statistics: GDP, unemployment, inflation, federal taxes, balance of payments, and other aggregate issues. Georgists tend to think in microeconomic terms: price-quantity relationships, including the effects of taxes on those prices and in terms of local issues.

While both approaches are relevant, the Georgist approach is overshadowed because microeconomic issues are rarely discussed public spaces such as newspapers and online. To increase public receptivity to Georgist philosophy, we need a macroeconomic message. This course is an attempt to present one.

Instructor:  Cliff Cobb was the editor of the American Journal of Economics and Sociology from 2014 through 2022.  He is best known  as the developer of the Genuine Progress Indicator, published by the San Francisco organization, Redefining Progress.
