At The Henry George School, 
we choose a world that is fair and just.
We are living in one of the most uncertain economic times since the Great Depression of the 1930s. The real estate bubble has burst. Wages are not keeping up with the cost of living while income disparity, inflation and unemployment are on the rise. Are these the result of misguided priorities or  symptoms of built –in defects in our current economic system? What can be done to change the course of things before they get worse?

To find out, join us at the Henry George School of Social Science. Our core curriculum is based on the writings of the American political economist and social reformer Henry George, author of
Progress and Poverty, an all-time best seller in economics.

Our free courses and seminars will provide you with the analytic tools to understand the root causes of the ongoing economic crisis and discover simple reforms that reward free enterprise, raise incomes and promote responsible development.
