Dr. Herbert Barry of Pittsburgh, an UrbanTools Director has shown his adeptness in outreach to all forms of media, including print and now radio. Please call in to the radio show on Friday March 30, to participate in this broadcast.
I will be interviewed on a radio show, on Friday 30 March 2012, 10:00 to 10:30 AM (Eastern time). Listeners can access it at the phone number 1-424-220-1873. The title I chose for the program is "How to remedy our maladaptive sources of government revenue." I designated Common Ground-USA as the organization to be promoted by this program[Dr. Barry is chair of the Pittsburgh, PA chapter].
Beginning shortly before the broadcast, and for several following days,the auditory program will be available at the internet website http://www.ashfordradio.com when Studio C is clicked near the top of the screen. This can be useful for listeners who do not have an alternative phone to use for asking a question during the half hour program.
I believe this is a worthwhile communication to try, even if it is my only action in this manner to publicize Henry George's proposals. I will argue that taxes on earnings and sales should be abolished and be replaced by a higher tax on owners of real estate. I hope to have the opportunity also to explain the advantages of taxing the value of land instead of the value
of buildings on the plot of land.
