Squeezing the inflow of, and barring from work low wage undocumented labor is boosting gross wages for those at the bottom of the employment pyramid. Trumpism is putting cash in the pockets of low wage US citizens. Scarcity of labor produces rising wages.

However, land values are rising faster than wages, baby, and that means net wages are declining. Trumpism is a celebration of private ownership of land values.

Join a walking tour that deconstructs the meanness of Trumpism, and which supplies an alternative social philosophy (complete with public policy proposals) that raises net wages by treating market-determined land values as public property.

Along the way you'll get a big dose of San Francisco social movement history as well as some song, some chocolate, and a bit of literary humor.
