Издательство: University Press of the Pacific

As a rational method of bringing the present social order into conformity with natural social laws which it now ignores, the Single Tax was proposed and explained early in the last third of the nineteenth century by Henry George (1839-1897). The issue of the single tax is discussed, as are fiscal and social defects of the existing system, and criticisms of proposed remedies. The economic and social advantages of the single tax are set forth with methods of implementation. Louis Freeland Post was a well respected journalist, lawyer, publicist, economist, author of many books, and Undersecretary of Labor in the Woodrow Wilson administration. He died in Washington, D.C., in 1928. He was a lifelong friend of Henry George, and in the 1880s was an editor of Henry George?s weekly organ in New York, The Standard.
