Land Use and Taxation

Applying the Insights of Henry George

Edited by H. James Brown

Junio 1997, inglés

Lincoln Institute of Land Policy

Can today’s policy makers and researchers effectively draw on the ideas of 19th-century philosopher Henry George to help solve 21st-century problems? This compendium presents eight essays by scholars who demonstrate that many of George’s ideas about land use and taxation remain valuable today. Policy makers still face Henry George’s fundamental challenge—to balance private property rights and public interests in land.
