Added Bonus! (papers not presented at Arden, but worth a look!)

Prisoners: Continue to Reach Out, of Time to Leave Out? by Thomas M. Lyons. Thomas has been teaching for the HGI from prison since 1991.

Fairhope: A Sentimental Review by Dian Arnold. Dian, a "latecomer" to Fairhope in 1953, looks at the promise and reality of that experiment in application of Georgist policies. Although Fairhope and Arden have much in common, they have taken difference paths. Despite setbacks, Dian Arnold remains hopeful.

Opportunities for International Financial Centres in the 21st Century by Prof. Mason Gaffney. Note: Dr. Gaffney was unable to join us in Arden, due to his prior commitment to present this paper in the Bahamas.
