"An inveterate optimist [who] makes an excellent case that, by applying the Henry George principle, we can reduce inequality, and raise ample public revenues to be directed at any one of a multitude of society's ills". Joseph Stiglitz // "Rent Unmasked is a tour de force, skilfully demonstrating that Georgist analysis can be presented in a form acceptable to modern economists ... the clear exposition of the merits of collecting land and natural resource rents whilst reducing or eliminating taxes on income earned by labour and capital is strongly recommended to all who wish to see economics recover its rightful place as the master social science."
