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.



Adair Turner: The Consequences of Money-Manager Capitalism By INETeconomics

 “Modern macro-economists have forgotten a lot that was familiar to an earlier generation of economists. …The focus on land value and on rents is something we moved away from.  We need to put that back into economics simply to understand what’s going on,” says Lord Adair Turner, senior fellow at the Institute for New Economic Thinking in a recent interview hosted by that institute’s “New Economic Thinking” series of conversations.  Entitled “The Consequences of Money Manager Capitalism,” the conversation often focuses on the issue of inequality.  Lord Turner points out that much of the world has moved “back to the levels of inequality that existed before 1914.”  Then as now, wealth was centered in real estate:  Then, the wealth was in income-producing agricultural land; now, it is in “urban real estate.”  Bringing to mind precepts advocated by Henry George, Lord Turner goes on to point out that an enormous amount of wealth arises from the accumulation of land value. “There is a tendency for income elite to congregate in one place and drive up the price.”  He points to a current trend in the U.K. which he calls “buy to let” and says the overall trend today is to “drive up rent as a percentage of income.”
