Smart Talk: How Henry George Shaped Modern Liberalism

Land and Liberty: Henry George and the Crafting of Modern Liberalism is the newly published book by Dr. Christopher England, professor of history at Georgetown University.

In this edition of Smart Talk, Ed Dodson speaks with Dr. England about George’s greatest contribution to the liberal movement: his popularization of the notion of social value via his emphasis on land value. They discuss how George re-contextualized liberalism in a way that builds off early Lockean ideas on the right to own what one produces.
