The Science of Political Economy Before and After Henry George
Join us as we explore the field of political economy with an eye to establishing the subject on a scientific foundation. This 10-lesson course, divided in two parts, will examine early moral and ethical teachings on land followed by a discussion of George’s contribution and legacy. We will also evaluate the responses from George’s contemporaries and beyond.
The instructor, Dan Sullivan, is a Georgist scholar, former President of the Council of Georgist Organizations (CGO), and Director of Saving Communities, a Pennsylvania based association that promotes fiscal integrity and economic justice.
