High school students (and others) seeking a three hour short-cut to sabotaging their economics indoctrination by either leftie-liberal or rightie-conventional free-market capitalism curriculum are invited to come along on a walking tour of downtown San Francisco that takes the wheels off the fore-going.

What if land itself were recognized as the big deal that everybody is willing to fight over? Not just any land, mind you, but land with the highest social/commercial interest? On this FREE tour of San Francisco's priciest land you'll get distinctions that enable you to take apart the LABOR vs. CAPITAL dichotomy and in so doing give your econ teacher fits. Watch him turn into a pretzel in front of the whole class as he attempts to either explain that land values just aren't important or that your new insights are pointless in the face of intractable power (and that struggle is futile).

In addition to equipping yourself to put adults' "knickers into a twist (an anglicism roughly equivalent to a wedgie)," you'll make the acquaintance of rarely seen outdoor sculpture in the heart of the financial district.
