Progress and Poverty

Book cover
By: (1839-1897)

Progress and Poverty by Henry George is a thought-provoking and insightful read on the socioeconomic issues of land ownership and wealth distribution. George's analysis of the societal implications of land monopolies and the widening wealth gap is both comprehensive and compelling.

The author's arguments are well-researched and logically presented, making it easy for readers to follow along and understand the complex economic concepts he discusses. George's proposed solution to alleviate poverty and promote progress, known as the "single tax," is both radical and intriguing, challenging readers to think critically about alternative economic models.

Overall, Progress and Poverty is a timeless classic that continues to be relevant in today's world, where income inequality and poverty are ongoing challenges. This book is a must-read for anyone interested in economics, social justice, and the quest for a more equitable society.

Book Description:
What I have done in this book, if I have correctly solved the great problem I have sought to investigate, is, to unite the truth perceived by the school of Smith and Ricardo to the truth perceived by the schools of Proudhon and Lasalle; to show that laissez faire (in its full true meaning) opens the way to a realization of the noble dreams of socialism; to identify social law with moral law, and to disprove ideas which in the minds of many cloud grand and elevating perceptions.
