Of course there are many possible answers to this question;
  • To obtain fairness.
  • To correct injustice.
  • To narrow the rich/poor divide.
  • To remove unearned income and give it to those that earned it.
  • To simplify the tax system.
  • To use the surplus arising from co-operation for community purposes.
We could probably add many more, but how is LVT to achieve our aims?
The answer has to be by shifting the tax burden.

Discussion Paper:
One technique for determining land values, and used in conjunction with others,
is the residual method. In principle, this deducts the value of the building from the
total value of the property to give the value of the site. But because rental values
are relatively stable but selling prices are volatile, the former figure is more
reliable as a basis for the valuation.

A Paper given to the Henry George Foundation March 2012
Joseph Milne

In Chapter VI of The Science of Political Economy, entitled ‘Cause of Confusion as to Property’, Henry George asks why John Stuart Mill was so confused about the basis of property. He replies that:
It is evidently the same thing that has prevented all the scholastic economists, both those who preceded and those who have succeeded him, from giving any clear and consistent statement of the laws of distribution or the origin of property. This is a pre-assumption they cannot bring themselves to abandon – the pre-assumption that land must be included in the category of property and a place found in the laws of distribution for the income of landowners. Since natural law can take no cognizance of the ownership of land, they are driven in order to support this pre-assumption to treat distribution

I am very glad to have the opportunity of contributing a few words by way of preface to this interesting study. It will be valuable to every student of the land question to have the facts — particularly as to its history — brought together so concisely and at the same time with such full documentary support.

Even those who do not find themselves entirely or even at all in agreement with Mr. Geary's conclusions will, I am sure, find his book extremely stimulating.

Land value tax (LVT) has been high on the political agenda for most of the past two centuries; in the three decades up to World War I it was backed by a widespread popular movement. Thus, in the broader perspective, its eclipse since about 1950 is exceptional. The flurry of fresh interest in recent years is due, amongst other things, to the realisation that tax systems have hit the limit to what they can raise, whilst expectations of government continue growing and attempts to cut large welfare bills consistently fail.
