Real Estate for Ransom
This 35 minute film produced by Prosper Australia identifies root causes of land speculation and land rent privatization, and proposes public policy that resolves those social and economic banes.
Crazy high real estate prices are not the high price of housing, they are the high price of land. Foreclosures are not, in a meaningful economic or moral sense, foreclosures on debt for housing, they are foreclosures on the debt owed for land values. Land values have retreated, but the debt owed for the mortgaged land values has not. The result is foreclosure, depressed wages, business recession, and a great deal of confusion.
Real Estate for Ransom opens up the profound question, who owns nature, and who should benefit from the value of nature?
Thursday, January 26, 7-8 pm screening, with 8-9 pm roundtable discussion hosted by the Henry George School.
