“Progress & Poverty is important,” say a BIG bunch of folks

October 23, 2017

Thanks to HGS graduate Robert Blau for reminding us that Emma Lazarus was a fan of Progress & Poverty, even writing a sonnet about it. En route to confirming this info, we tripped over a list of about 200 significant individuals (including sources and quotes, starting about halfway down this page) who have endorsed Progress & Poverty and/or Henry George. And found that Progress & Poverty has dozens of reviews at Goodreads, mostly 5-star with comments such as “Once you read it, you’ll never see the world the same again,” “profound and transcendent,” and “literally the most important book ever written.”  

To find out more, come to our free presentation “Introducing Progress & Poverty” this Sunday, October 29, and/or sign up to receive occasional announcements of our events and classes.
