Land Value Tax: UK Rules OK

The drum beat gets louder for serious and sustained debate on all sides of the political spectrum - and all areas - of the UK for land value tax.  From those of us in the US, the pace is dizzying, and is in stark and disgraceful contrast to the fear of all political sides to grasp the nettle, and fix the long retraction that affects all parts of the nation.

This week, the Guardian, a reliably left-of-center newspaper of record has yet another article engaging LVT,  (Coincidentally, the Economics correspondent of the Guardian mooting the idea is Phillip Inman, who happens to share the name of Robert Inman, the University of Pennsylvania economics professor who has asked for similar serious consideration of LVT for Philadelphia.)

At the same time, the reliably right-of-center Institute of Economic Affairs, offered land value tax for discussion on their well-regarded site, as did Ekklesia, a Christian social justice site withh published a piece by Bernadette Meaden .

From Labour to Liberal Democrat to Conservative, from Scottish Greens to UK Greens  and Welsh Labour, the debate is on; it will become more difficult for the Blair,  gentry, and rentier sections of society to ignore the ferment.

Research from all sectors has been issued; now the will is needed to help the UK stop the centrifugal forces dividing and distancing communities from each other, and create a sane and prosperous society

LVT Proponents Lord Snowden, Ramsay MacDonald, Winston Churchill and Lloyd George.. may now be the time?
