VLA COMMENT: Must read…a very important concept. Alanna Hartzok is Brilliant!
I attended an afternoon lecture by Alanna…she is brilliant…a must read book on the solution of positioning land as a resource for people and food production as opposed to using land as a speculative commodity for personal gain. Solution: Taxing land so that it is not profitable investing it as simply a speculative commodity…concomitant with reducing/eliminating taxes on homes and labor. Fascinating read.
