Abstract
 
Description
Twelve economics scholars from Australia, the U.S., and Canada contribute 11 essays offering a range of perspectives on American political economist Henry George (1839-1897), whose theories have the potential to contribute toward solutions for contemporary problems such as runaway land values, nationalization of land, monopoly control of public assets and environmental degradation. Coverage includes historical background, theoretical issues, and the application of Georgist philosophies to current debates, particularly in Australia and New Zealand. Indexed by name only. For upper level students and scholars of the history of economic thought and the public sector, and economists in general. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com) - from Amzon
