Our courses cast light on today’s baffling economic problems.

Who was Henry George?

During his lifetime, he became the third most famous person in America, behind Thomas Edison and Mark Twain. He was one of the most important voices of the Progressive Era, and his supporters included Leo Tolstoy, Albert Einstein, Winston Churchill and John Dewey, to name a few. Here is more on George’s life and work.

We’ve had students in all these countries.

The Henry George Institute is a non-profit organization, founded in 1971. It is a membership organization supported by dues and contributions. In the belief that the philosophy of Henry George has important answers to today’s urgent problems, the Institute is established to promote this philosophy by educational means. Here’s more on the HGI, and how to join. You can join the HGI, renew dues, or make a contribution right here!

Membership in the Henry George Institute

...has only two requirements: pay your annual dues of $20 (us), and indicate your agreement with our Statement of Purpose. As a member, you get a subscription to the Georgist Journal, and a vote in our annual election for members of the Board of Directors.

STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

In accordance with the philosophy of Henry George, the Henry George Institute holds that all persons have a right to the use of the earth and that all have a right to the fruits of their labor. To implement these rights it is proposed that the rent of land be taken by the community as public revenue, and that all taxes on labor and the fruits of labor be abolished. The Institute believes with George that “liberty means justice and justice is the natural law,” and that the social and economic ills besetting the world today are the result of non-conformance to natural law. The Institute pledges itself to bring this philosophy to the attention of the public by all suitable means.
