About Henry George

Henry George (1839-1897) was a noted American political economist. He was once described as the third most well known man in the United States, after Thomas Edison and Mark Twain. His radical ideas to reduce poverty and inequality have found favour with such people as Leo Tolstoy, George Bernard Shaw, David Lloyd George and Martin Luther King, Jr.

"It would require less than the fingers of the two hands to enumerate those who from Plato down rank with him." "... one of the world's great social philosophers." John Dewey, Philosopher
