About this Event

This five-class course explores the degrowth thesis of Kate Raworth’s Doughnut Economics -7 Ways to Think Like a 21st Century Economist (2017) and finds that Henry George actually supported a similar thesis, just 138 years earlier. The “Growth and Anarchy” title of the course is a play on George’s “Progress and Poverty” title. Anarchy is the likely outcome of pursuing growth (while accommodating its rent-seeking cousin) and failing to adopt a system of social development that has captured land values pay for those necessary services (that include breathable air, drinkable water, commonly-owned land, healthcare, security, transit, power, communications, and financial services) for the advantage of everyone.
