The Georgist News is now distributed directly by the Robert Schalkenbach Foundation. RSF Board and Staff members wish to thank outgoing editor Jeff Smith for his tireless dedication and whole-hearted engagement over the years!

The Georgist News is a unique and useful resource, and we’ll do our best to build on what has come before and perhaps even find new ways to serve the Georgist community. Please let us know what you think. We welcome your thoughtful observations and constructive feedback, as well as your Georgist news.

(2012 June) Contents

Joyous June, the birth month of Smith, Keynes, and quasi-geoists
F.L. Wright and Rousseau, and the anti-geoist Prop 13. As a British
colony, Hong Kong (existing on public land) began and ended, as did
World War I, which ended the land tax in the British budget and the
actual levy in some German towns. But we’re making a comeback. Note
below what your cohorts are achieving – and what your intended
audience would like to hear. “My green thumb came only as a result
of the mistakes I made while learning to see things from the plant’s
point of view.” – H. Fred Dale. And if you know anyone else who’d
enjoy the News, put them in touch. Thanks.

The 32nd North American Conference of the Council of
Georgist Organizations, July 30 – August 6, 2012, Next to
Harrisburg, Pennsylvania at the Camp Hill Radisson
by Dan Sullivan, May 31, 2012

On Tuesday, July 31, at the Harrisburg Radisson Hotel, we intend to
debate ANY responsible leader of the anti-property-tax movement. If
nobody has the courage to support their claims in a debate format,
we will analyze video clips made by David Baldinger, head of the
Pennsylvania Taxpayers Cyber Coalition, and other opponents of
property tax reduction and show why their statements are mostly
misleading and sometimes simply false.

Don’t miss the deadline to register; be included in our bus tour of
Harrisburg and Hershey!
