The Political Economy Book Club will be discussing Machiavelli’s most famous work, The Prince. One of the great works of political philosophy, it is regarded as one of the pinnacles of Renaissance thought. Machiavelli was a polymath, immersed in countless academic subjects, and yet simultaneously intimately involved in the politics of his day, holding many titles and offices.
PEBC coordinator Bob Matter would appreciate an RSVP, if possible, from those planning to attend.
In recent years, Georgists have created a large amount of video material about fundamental economic concepts, their basis and their application. Some are brief, some extended. All are helpful in understanding what we teach, why it’s important, and how it can be used. Producers include Earthsharing, Earthsharing Australia, Council of Georgist Organizations, and others. We’ll be watching a bunch of these during a four hour period Tuesday evening. Feel free to drop by for as long (or short) as you’d like. A list of the videos, with links, will be provided, as will some light refreshments.
The event is free, altho donations to help pay our rent and other expenses are appreciated.
Come visit with Jim Frederiksen, one of our more innovative thinkers in presenting Georgist ideas in a modern context. You’ll be able to hear Jim’s thoughts on both ongoing and historical research, and his criticisms of modern economic thought.
"If people tried to understand economic laws and respect them the same way they respect the laws of physics, we would certainly live in much saner– and more prosperous– societies."
