The Gritty, Moral Solution to the Housing Crisis with David Giesen
Part of Sustainable Economies Legal Center's "Rethinking Home" Teach-in Series
Fixing the housing crunch isn't easy, but there is a permaculture solution. Dave Giesen, economist and playwright, makes the case for socializing the rent of land in a hands-on, interactive seminar that identifies the value of what real estate agents mean by "location, location, location" as the lynch-pin in a holistic, sustainable economy.
We'll also welcome Ben Grieff, Campaign Director for Evolve Prop 13, to discuss the California Prop 13 reform campaign as an example of Geogist social philosophy in practice.
Join us for this lively, provocative, and practical conversation, asking: "Is there one good reason one human being should pay another for merely occupying land itself?"
