“A way has to be found to enable everyone to benefit from the fruits of the earth, and not simply to close the gap between the affluent and those who must be satisfied with the crumbs falling from the table, but above all to satisfy the demands of justice, fairness and respect for every human being.”
– Pope Francis, Address to the Food and Agricultural Organization, 6/20/13
Did you know that Henry George proposed a just and workable way to accomplish the task the Pope identified? Did you know that partial applications of George’s proposal have demonstrated real progress in eliminating poverty and bringing prosperity to working people? Did you know that, unless you have an exceptional instructor, you probably won’t cover these ideas in your regular classes? Do you want to learn more about George’s proposal and how it can work today?
You can learn the basics in two hours, at a special presentation by Henry George School instructor George Menninger on Tuesday, October 7, 2014 at 6 p.m. This particular event is open only to students at three universities (DePaul, Loyola, Dominican) and comes with a guarantee: If you don’t feel it was worth your time, the instructor will personally pay you $20 to compensate for your loss. (If you don’t take the $20, you’ll get a transferable voucher covering the cost of a regular Henry George School course or tour. )
This program will be on Tuesday, October 7, 6 PM at the Henry George School, 30 E Adams #1207, Chicago 60603. Preregistration is required; use the form below. Feel free to email us or call 312 450 2906 with any questions.
(If you are not qualified by being a student at one of the three universities, or if the session is full, you’re still welcome to attend any of our free events, or inexpensive classes covering much of the same material.)
"The freedom to earn, without fear or favor, a comfortable living, ought to go with the freedom to vote."
