Land Value Tax on the Radio: How to turn Scranton around





An item that has been making Front Page news lately has been the mess into which Scranton, PA  has sunk.  We commented, and got lots of response.  The nicest was from David Madeira, a talk show host for 94.3 FM.  He asked UT director Joshua Vincent to come on and make sense of the fiscal and economic history behind Scranton's woes and our proposal to let Scranton return to fiscal sanity by  using a tool it already, but barely uses: the land value tax.  Mr. Madeira was clearly educated on the subject and asked good questions.

We believe that this form of communicating the idea of land value tax works, and we do it as often as we can.  We believe that citizens are just as ready to hear real alternatives as the academy or policy makers.

The 12 minute segment starts at about the 20:00 mark on this podcast.    As Josh Vincent has always been told he has a face made for radio, this was a perfect venue.
