Land speculation is a rotten, sociopathic activity, and the argument in favor of land speculation is an argument in favor of extortion, self-aggrandizement, and privilege.

In this one hour interactive seminar, you'll be introduced to a specific public policy plan that would obliterate land speculation without harming private property rights in goods and services.

Why is a pint of San Francisco dirt worth three times Kansas City dirt? Put the identical two bedroom house on similarly-sized lots in both cities and the rent is different. What's that about? And should the mere ownership of one part of America give its Christopher Columbus a steep advantage over all the analogous native Americans and later arrivals who get the analogous parcel in Kansas City (or Kenosha, WI)?

No screaming, no excoriation of Capitalism, just a big plop of Land Value Taxation.
