Incentive Taxation

2016: Another Year of Advances and Retrenchment


1.       Education. Most of the world is not aware that there are alternatives to our current system of taxation and looking at how society functions. Most especially, the collection of economic rent as propounded through the centuries by Adam Smith, John Stuart Mill, Tom Paine, Henry George all the way down to Joseph Stiglitz as an alternative to the failed policies of Socialism and Neoliberalism.  We educate the general public and elected another policy officials on a proven workable alternative: land value taxation.

2.       Activism. UrbanTools/CSE responds to pressing issues of the day local, state and even national levels. We take positions that demonstrate the often futile methods of raising revenue and managing a just society by providing an alternative. For example, we’ve been opposing excise taxes on the poor actively in 2016. We made our case on the editorial pages of newspapers and neighborhood meetings.

3.       Implementation. CSE is the only LVT advocacy group and has a set series of policy tools that any government can and does use to enact land value taxation at any level. This includes property tax rates, value capture, and replacement of corrosive and destructive taxes.

 UrbanTools/CSE believes that our political economy is in need of help right now. Working and poor people should not pay more than their fair share. Those that build, invest and hire should not be punished by higher taxes. Forces seeking advantage, privilege and monopoly need to be told to get working instead of keep grabbing.


This is what we do. Many people believe we do it well. We thank you for your past support, and we ask for your continued engagement in the coming years.  We need your help and your hopes for a better world for everyone.
