Ghosts of Henry George

So it's not quite the same thing, but I note today's news that Bill P. is promoting a new form of tax abatement on commerical and industrial development in the city of Pittsburgh if the news account has that right.

Is the goal to encourage more industry in Pittsburgh (the city proper) or to encourage more people to live in the city?  Is the city losing residents or jobs?

I just bring that up because I once made the case for a more complete tax abatement on Pittsburgh residential investment.

Everyone has equal rights to the Land and resources of the Earth. Bravo! EVERY form of taxation is removed. 100% of the rental value of Land (based on supply/demand values) is collected. 100% of the revenues from the Land rent are redistributed to every man, woman and child equally. EVERYONE receives a Land Dividend that exactly equals the Land rent on the average piece of Land . Infrastructure is funded by fair use fees – use it you pay, don’t use it you don’t pay. This places the monetary system within the boundaries of Life which ensures equal Freedom and Responsibility for ALL. Bravo!
