Henry George: Political Ideologue, Social Philosopher and Economic Theorist

توضیحات

Containing important papers by various Georgist scholars, this book highlights the ideas and influence of Henry George as a political economist. It features path-breaking work on Henry George’s rent theory and includes noted scholars such as Mason Gaffney, who discusses capital theory. With a possible ‘Georgist revival’ in economic reform and the proverbial quest for justice, this book provides a timely volume. This book is part of the Studies in Economic Reform and Social Justice series which is produced out of the American Journal of Economics and Sociology.
