Henry George (1839-1897) has left a legacy in both economic theory and public opinion

Call for Paper: 'Henry George Re-Considered'

October 29, 1997

Maastricht University, room 1.089

The American economist Henry George (1839-1897) has left a legacy in both economic theory and public opinion, and the two sometimes stand in each other's way. The great taskmaster of economists, Joseph Schumpeter, gave George high marks. The centenary of his death on October 29, 1897, provides a welcome opportunity to look at his scholarly contribution from the point of view of today's pressing problem.

George provided, in today's language, a tax constitution in order to promote development. Hence, his work should be relevant with respect to such diverse issues as:

  1. Meeting the Maastricht criteria.

  2. Organizing an orderly transition process from planned economies to market economies.

  3. Solving the problem of an aging population.

  4. This is a tall order.

A conference will be held at Maastricht University to address these and related issues that the work of Henry George poses. Papers in any of these fields are welcome. Conference languages are English, Dutch and German. For further information please contact:

Bryan Kavanagh and his son Paul have kept on, keeping on with TRAs Homepage. Regular updates and the very useful FORUM for frequently and rarely asked questions (anyone can answer, too). The FORUM could come alive in 1997 with national input. Perhaps this is where we can link more between States, and try to combine our ideas and approaches to passing our the message that is our common belief.

It is in truth not for glory, nor riches, nor honours that we are fighting, but for freedom - for that alone, which no honest man gives up but with life itself.
