Financial collapse. Economic inequality. Global disruptions. Skyrocketing unemployment and poverty. Sound familiar?

This wasn’t 2008. This was seven decades before. In the aftermath of the Great Depression, the Henry George School of Social Sciences was born. The Henry George School was founded in 1932 as part of a reform movement that sought to establish fundamental economic justice and sustainable prosperity for all. The movement’s primary goal was to bring about the land value tax or single tax advocated by George in his classic work, Progress and Poverty. This book, spurred by an even earlier period of economic and social upheaval, remains the all-time bestselling book on political economy. Winston Churchill, Leo Tolstoy, John Dewey and Albert Einstein were among the influentials who endorsed George’s proposals.

Since the school’s founding, tens of thousands of students have taken courses and attended seminars in economics and social philosophy. The Henry George School remains dedicated to its founding principles:

  • Educate people about the philosophies of visionary economist Henry George
  • Explain the importance of these philosophies in the global landscape of the 21st century
  • Explore the economic issues of today’s world
  • Encourage and promote economic and social justice
