2. (2014 February) Conference: CGO Updates

The Council of Georgist Organizations 2014 conference is less than 5 months away.  We thought you’d like to know about some of the 20+ talks and panels.

  • Alex Wagner Lough will be speaking on California land history.
  • Ed Dodson will be leading a round table discussion on land markets and the general economy with economists from both coasts.
  • There will be a discussion on  mal-assessment of land under Prop 13 and its options with former Santa Monica Mayor Mike Feinstein & Lenny Goldberg of California Rax Reform Association. Lenny Goldberg has proposed a proposition to remove commercial property from the pro 13 assessment freeze. He uses high-tech land value maps, with evidence of mal-assessment of commercial lands.
  • LGBT activists John Lewis & Stuart Gaffney will discuss how  the LBGT movement rocketed from the fringe to the mainstream in 25 years. They will then compare and contrast the Georgist & LBGT movements.
