This Saturday morning class is the classic version,  taking ten sessions (two each Saturday for five weeks) to provide a detailed look at the obstacles to prosperity and Henry George’s recommendations for overcoming them.  Along the way you’ll gain insight into how the economy works (and why it often doesn’t).  And you may be able to obtain college credit (more here).

The course is designed around Henry George’s original Progress and Poverty text, but if you find you lack time to read the entire thing there are abridgements available. There are also small supplementary readings which bring the ideas George expressed in 1879 into the 21st century.  While all the material is posted on-line, you will also receive hardcopy when you pay your $25 registration fee.
