Shack Simple is Pleased to Announce the Up-Coming Publication of Land Is A Big Deal, by Lars A. Doucet
July 15, 2022
Here at Shack Simple we are proud to announce the forthcoming publication of what we believe is an important book, and one that we hope will have an important influence on public policy. In this insightful, clear and entertaining riff on Henry George's seminal work on land reform and land taxation, Progress and Poverty, Lars A Doucet examines the hidden role of land in shaping our entire economy, and the way that land and the policies that govern it exercise an incredible and largely forgotten power over our lives. When land is wasted and squandered by speculation, we get sky-high rents, oppressed workers, ruined businesses, depleted natural resources, a polluted earth, and an impoverished society. Land is a very big deal, and this book both explains the current failures of public land policy and offers concrete solutions regarding what we can do to fix it.
The publication date for Land is a Big Deal is October 15, 2022.
Land is a Big Deal is now available for pre-publication purchase in advance of its mid-October publication date.
