The Taxing Question of LandThe Taxing Question of Land
This British film makes a pitch for a form of taxation first proposed by American economist Henry George.

The Taxing Question of Land (Yonatan Higgsmith, UK, 2013; 31 min.) The UK has 60 million acres of land and a growing population of 63 million. The way population interacts with this land creates value for the UK. The question of how to redistribute this value back to all of the population is at the heart of the taxation system. But the present system is flawed, unfair and it stifles growth, yet there is hope.  The film makes a pitch for a form of taxation first proposed by American economist Henry George.The Taxing Question of Land (Yonatan Higgsmith, UK, 2013; 31 min.)
