Books & Pamphlets on Earth Rights, Earthsharing, Economic Justice, Tax Reform & Urban Revival

Here is an excellent opportunity to understand the depth of analysis that informs paragraph 56, sections(e), (f) and (h) of Adequate Shelter for All of the Official Habitat Draft Agenda. Fiscal approaches to recapture land value and release hoarded land for shelter development were pioneered by the American writer and reformer, Henry George. The Robert Schalkenbach Foundation was created to promote George's approach to economic freedom and social justice. A 50-page free catalog of all our materials is available upon request.
