Show Notes
The Renegades Podcourse #3: Land is the central tenet of Georgist understanding, but yet our most valuable asset is ignored in economics, ignored in the policy setting – unless it starts to falter. Land represents natural resources above and below us. It also represents land-like assets that share a similar natural monopoly status. So it is crucial to determining both wealth distribution and societal efficiencies. A short clip is included featuring Jacob Schwartz-Lucas on the key ingredient – the law of rent.
