How could Cuba (and for that matter, America) simultaneously give the market-worshiping capitalist running dogs in the D.C.-Miami corridor a huge dose of what they want while at the same time honoring the revolutionistxs with enough rose-colored public policy to float their island?
Land Value Taxation.
A 95% tax on the potential annual income from land that would destroy all ability to gain from mere ownership of Pachamama, while at the same time generating three times the current public revenue in Cuba;
matched with no tax on wages, no business tax, and no sales/VAT tax.
Come along on a free walking tour surveying San Francisco social movements that resolves into presentation of San Francisco's Big Idea, a land reform proposal that would fix San Francisco and Cuba (and anywhere else).
Testimonials as to the walk's relevance come in the form of commies and libertarians alike, Dems and Repubs together crossing the street hand in hand to avoid facing the possibility that there is a non-expropriationary fix, namely treating market-determined land values as public property.
Dare to wake before 8 on Saturday morning to hear what "Your Call" and "The Rush Limbaugh Show" won't whisper.
