We are proud to present the 116th Dinner to celebrate the birthday of Henry George, the visionary who saw that the bounty of the earth was every citizen’s birthright. Professor Michael Young will give the keynote address on Water in a Georgist paradigm. He will discuss this hot topic in light of the political realities of water management in the future. How much should we pay for water? Would Henry George have recommended that water as well as land be taxed?

Alanna Hartzok & Earth Rights for all

Over 12 talks and 450 plus people heard Alanna’s core message –

“We all have an equal right and a birth right to the Earth. The earth has a biological & ecological right to its future too. We are promoting a new form of property rights where what you build with your own hands, what you labour for, is your private property. You shouldn’t be taxed for something productive you are doing. What we are saying is that the gifts of nature, the land & natural resources of the earth belong to we the people. We all deserve a fair share of the profits from these natural gifts. This is a natural form of public finance policy”
