Drinks in Common, the nearly monthly social gathering of the Henry George Historical Society sports a splendid talk this month. Sun Yat-sen, China today, and the American application is the subject of a chafing call to think big, but act locally, using the San Francisco-born economic advocacy of China's leading historical democratic figure.

What a ringing endorsement we get this coming Thursday, July 21! The clear, emphatic, and necessary element of land rent reform as a matter of genuine societal health rang from the lips (and dripped from the cartridge pen) of turn to the 20th century Chinese nationalist revolutionary intellectual Sun Yat-sen.

This coming Thursday, British historian, economist and transportation commissioner Dave Wetzel, on speaking tour of the US, will grace Drinks in Common with remarks about the georgist legacy in Sun Yat-sen's economic advocacy for China. His talk, "China, robust economy, and Sun's San Francisco mandate" should be a treat, full of information and practical possibilities.

The door at Notable House, 189 Ellsworth St. in San Francisco's Bernal Heights neighborhood, opens at 6:45 pm, complimentary supper is served buffet-style from 7, Wetzel's remarks begin at 7:30, and Q&A and discussion run from 8 pm on.

An RSVP is appreciated for planing purposes. But don't not come.
