The IU View: Winter 2016

“In our time…creep on the insidious forces that, producing inequality, destroy Liberty.”

— Henry George, Progress and Poverty (1879)

Greetings! This is the News Worth Reporting edition of the IU view. Herein you will find pertinent sections of seven mainstream media articles describing the many positive benefits of land value taxation. The “news is the news” for our favourite public finance policy this year of 2015!

After reading these stories I think you will agree that our movement for LVT has made a breakthrough in media awareness in several countries. The information presented in these stories is accurate and clearly presented. Taken as a whole, all the major reasons why LVT is an excellent tax policy are well stated. The writers show an in-depth understanding, a knowledge of the history of the idea, and an awareness of current high profile advocates.
