The PTOS Education Committee proudly presents:

Henry George: A Neglected Thinker, His Thoughts, and Their Relevance in Today’s World

Presented by Nicholas Rosen

February 28, 2024 at 1pm ET

 

Please join us as Nicholas Rosen (a USPTO employee and fellow PTOS member) gives an educational presentation on the economic thought of Henry George, and how it has worked in the real world, to the extent it has been applied.  Henry George (1839-1897) was an economist and reformer who wrote books, influenced many people, and had an active mass movement in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.  He was reported to be the third best-known American of his time, after Mark Twain and Thomas Edison.  Briefly, he offered an explanation for why the great improvements in productive technology which had occurred before and during his lifetime had made some people rich, but had done little to raise the wages of ordinary workers, and why the world suffered repeated bouts of industrial depression and high unemployment.
