Description: 
Henry George transformed America’s understanding of economics so much it took Neoclassical Economics (an intentional project of elites) to counter and sideline it; yet, as economists talk and calculate over the course of 140 years, the solution to poverty still stands as close as the noses on their faces. At each economic crisis, the Henry George moment appears, then fades as adherents to his philosophy fail to advance. We see that changing in 2019-2020. We will wrap up the discussion with a story about a vacant plot of land (idle for decades) in New Jersey in a highly urbanized/valued location.
