Housing crisis waffles on

E-mail Print PDF

Why have all attempts to fix Britain’s housing crisis failed? Look to the land, writes Toby Lloyd in today's Guardian. The real answer, in a nutshell, is because people like Lloyd, who know all about land value taxation and the theory behind it, but presuambly have some vested interest such as a career to protect, do not have the courage to mention it.

As one commentator has written "Amazing that this entire piece has been written without mentioning Henry George. LVT may well be the best idea never systematically implemented and may be more justified today than in the 1880s" And incidentally, it would be a good idea if people stopped referring to what is a chronic condition as a crisis.
