4a. (June 2012) Movement Progress: Africa Pipeline Summit

Africa Pipeline Summit by Dave Wetzel, General Secretary, The International Union February 14, 2012 I am speaking at the 2012 Africa Pipeline Summit in South Africa [ed. note: Dave’s headlining!] www.iqpc.com/Event.aspx?id=611716 . Reviewing how pipelines offer a viable and environmental alternative to the use of lorries and trucks for the transportation of oil & gas . Increasing land values with productivity and environmental improvements arising from greater use of pipelines . Understanding how an annual Land Value Tax would be an efficient way to harmonise social justice with economic efficiency My first speech couldn’t have been all bad as the organizers from Bahrein have invited to make a similar presentation at their Pipelines India Conference in June. I make my second contribution this afternoon. In the evening, dinner with Stephen Meintjes, a Georgist member of the School of Economic Science, and his wife Simone. I’m speaking to students at the school on Saturday morning. It’s not all work – spent time yesterday to visit a lion park and play with lion cubs trying to eat my shoes and shirt! (The cubs were not interested in LVT.)
