In this election year, a lot of people are asking how to make the economy move again. How to create jobs, make better wages and find affordable housing.

If you want to talk about these and learn about solutions to these economic problems, then stop in the Georgist Gild Booth at the Arden Fair.

We are in the colorful booth that sells balloons (across from the entrance to the Gild Hall and next to the T-Shirts)

Harrisburg: A Land Value Tax (LVT) Success Story

Mayor Stephen Reed introduced land value tax or LVT to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania and credits it for playing a key role in Harrisburg’s recovery during his 28 years as mayor. Reed was defeated in 2009 by the current mayor, Linda Thompson who is also a supporter of the LVT. Both of them addressed the attendees at this year’s conference which was held in Harrisburg. They both expressed how impotrtant the land Value Tax was to their city’s recovery and told the Georgists in attendence to take the lead on educating America’s policy makers about this very effective economic solution for improving cities, creating jobs and  affordable housing, and making urban areas liveable again.

Also at this year’s conference: Arden’s Mike Curtis did a presentation on LVT, Higher Buildings, More Revenue, Increased Land Values
