Important and timely book
This is a wonderful book, that helped me see that much of the world's warfare and social deprivation is caused by the predator culture, i.e., charging people to use the earth that Nature has given us.
This book takes the lid off the main cause of poverty and inequality in society. We do not normally consider the 'land question' and this book spells it out clearly and concisely. With the coalition considering new ways of taxing us, it would be useful if the Chancellor got hold of this book now!
Fred Harrison's latest book adds additional depth and historical perspective to his prior works. He has adeptly analyzed the fundamental causes of the conflicts that plague societies and humanity generally.
Private ownership of land is the issue. Resolved by introducing an annual land value tax to enable reductions in taxes on labour and enterprise. This will significantly reduce inequalities, tackle endemic boom and bust and provide revenue for public works.
