Progress and Poverty

Henry George

January 2003, English

Published by the Robert Schalkenbach Foundation


Subtitled “An Inquiry into the Cause of Industrial Depressions and of Increase of Want with Increase of Wealth…The Remedy,” this classic book, published originally in 1879, presents George’s theories based on the concept that equality of access to land is the principal solution to economic injustice. George proposed removing all taxes on labor, business and trade, and taxing only the value of land to provide enough revenue for government and reduce speculation, thus benefiting both the individual and the community.
