Henry George was an American political economist and he was the most influential proponent of the land value tax, also known as the "single tax" on land. He inspired the economic philosophy known as Georgism that we still can feel its strong influence on modern American life. Today, American economic structure has moved away from a natural resource based economy to knowledge based economy that Henry George should be given a credit for this.  His essential view about value is that people should own what they create. Everything found in nature, most importantly the value of land, belongs equally to all humanity. 

Henry George is best known for his Progress and Poverty that Albert Einstein designated George a "beautiful combination of intellectual keenness, artistic forum, and fervent love of justice". The book Progress and Poverty by Henry George in 1879 is a treatise on inequality, the cyclic nature of industrialized economies, and the use of the land value tax as a remedy

This book is for readers who need to learn and understand the core economic value, economic policy, and its future economic direction of America.
