Event description

Description

In his “fighting” book, Social Problems published nearly a decade after Progress & Poverty, Henry George argued that the unequal distribution of wealth is the fundamental problem that defines and shapes all other social problems faced by modern societies. He saw in monopoly and, in particular land monopoly the driving force behind wealth inequality and economic injustice. This course will walk us through George’s framework and ask whether his diagnosis of the key social problem was accurate then and now, and most importantly, discuss whether his recipe for economic prosperity and social justice is still relevant today.
