Chrystia Freeland instituted an LVT!!

Earthsharing Canada Google Group - Mon, 2021-04-19 17:59
The budget introduced only one new tax, and it was a partial LVT: 1 per cent annually, on vacant or “underused” residential property owned by non-residents. Nice to see that our Georgist finance minister took the opportunity to introduce this economy-boosting tax. Of course it should have been

Chrystia actually said the horrible words!!

Earthsharing Canada Google Group - Mon, 2021-04-12 10:14
Chrystia actually said the horrible words!! MMT continues to drive orthodox economists nuts. But without Henry George economics, without rental value capture, MMT will be self-defeating, cycling QE through the population but with the end result of inflating assets, exacerbating the wealth gap.

Review of Matthew Desmond’s Evicted

ECONAMICI A land economist's view - Mon, 2021-03-08 23:53

Matthew Desmond, a sociologist, lived for two years among poor renters in Milwaukee, first in a south side trailer park occupied mainly by whites, and then in the north side black inner city. In both places, he interviewed and followed several tenants as they moved through the devastating process of eviction, in some cases multiple times. Evicted, Poverty and Profit in an American City (2016), bestseller and Pulitzer Prize winner, tells their personal stories. Desmond's people, suffering from poverty, mental or physical illness, addiction, and harsh and arbitrary treatment by public authorities, will also be hardest hit by the coronavirus. . . . → Read More: Review of Matthew Desmond’s Evicted
