The course at the Henry George School has been extended. Attendance and feedback have been great, so we are adding two additional sessions to the originally scheduled five. However we will be changing the day of the week for the additional sessions, since the HGS has another course starting in the Monday time slot. So this coming Monday (March 25th) will be the last of the originally scheduled sessions, and the two additional sessions will be on Wednesday, April 3rd and 10th at 6:30pm EDT. Link for signup:

Money: The Big Spiked Hammer

Oct. 17, 2023
We’re very excited to announce that Gesell Foundation Director Josh Sidman will be giving an online course on Gesellian economics at The Henry George School of Social Science starting in January. The Georgists are natural allies of ours since we share the core belief that private ownership of land is a key driver of poverty, wealth inequality and economic instability. Therefore they represent an important audience and potential base of support for the Gesellian program. The course will consist of 5 sessions and will begin on Monday, January 22nd. More details to follow.

We were contacted the other day by the director of a publication in Germany called Humane Wirtschaft (Humane Economy) which has been promoting Gesellian ideas for the past 17 years. Connecting with other Gesellian groups around the world in order to build a worldwide movement is a central part of our mission. Their online publication can be found at:
