Introducing Progress and Poverty @ Levy Center Evanston
Jan 11 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Yes, it is possible to end poverty in America — or any independent nation — by recognizing a clear and logical distinction between private property and community property. Not just the poor, but everyone would have the opportunity to earn a decent living and enjoy better quality of life. Henry George, a famous American philosopher and economist of the late 19th century, was the most prominent advocate of this reform. His book on the subject, Progress and Poverty, probably the best-selling nonfiction work of his time, sparked a movement which brought prosperity to several American communities and foreign countries.

Introducing Progress and Poverty is a program by the Henry George School of Chicago, outlining the principles George advocated, how and why they work, and their potential for solving today’s problems in this city and elsewhere. Attendance is without charge or obligation.

For those wanting in-depth understanding of the logic and implications of Progress and Poverty, this presentation is also the first session of an extended course, meeting at the same location on the next six Fridays.

This event is open to everyone.  RSVP is optional by email or by phoning us at 312 362-9302.

If you are interested in the topic but this date and location don’t fit your schedule, please sign up for our announcement list.

Introducing Progress and Poverty will also be offered on January 12 in the Irving Park neighborhood, and January 15  in the Loop.
