Abstract

Henry George's Progress and Poverty sold more than 3 million copies by the time of its 50th anniversary in 1929 -outselling all other works on economics - yet today economics students can complete their courses without ever having heard of the author's name. This collection aims to redress this neglect, by presenting a range of perspectives on Henry George's fertile ideas which, it is increasingly argued, merit revisiting in terms of their capacity to contribute towards solutions to current problems including runaway land values, nationalization of land, monopoly control of public assets and environmental degradation. 'Henry George's Legacy in Economic Thought' will appeal in particular to upper level students and scholars of the history of economic thought and the public sector but also to economists more widely
