WHO GETS THE RENT FOR THE
LEVEL PLAYING FIELD?
University of Western Australia extension course , $53 for four nights:
7-8.30pm Wed. January 7, 14, 21, 28, 1998
Lecturer: Michael Lynch, of Murdoch University
As the debate about modern tax solutions focuses on a possible Goods and Services Tax
(GST), alternatives are not being widely discussed in the community.
This course will look at the oldest tax source, 'land'.
The necessity of identifying the nature of the return from the economics
factor 'land' is fundamental to successful and equitable
tax reform. It is also at the core of understanding the
ecological, economic and social crises that beset us in
a post-industrial economy. Geonomics is about
identifying the need to capture the surplus return to
'land' for the general community. It would be a substitute
for all taxes and provide a panacea for the socio-economic
problems of the latter part of the 20th century.
