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!!

This is Part I of Fred Harrison's latest work. Humans became a hugely successful species because we generated rent and shared it. But now the rent is being appropriated and misused by a minority impoverishing the majority and destroying nature. Frank Life on Earth: Part 1: #WeAreRent
