Mission Statement

The Center for the Study of Economics is a 501(c)(3) non-profit educational foundation, established in 1980 as the sister organization of the Henry George Foundation of America.

Our mission is to research land value taxation, to assist governments in implementation and to study the effect of land based property taxation where used. It suggests implementation where appropriate but does not support political candidates or become involved in the electoral process. The Center also gathers and disseminates articles, studies and monographs on the subject of land based taxation.


We are looking for volunteers who believe there must be a better way to finance our governments, combat sprawl without breaking the public bank, and are interested in helping the disadvantaged without establishing new layers of intrusive and uncaring bureaucracy.

If you believe reforming the tax structures today will lead us toward a fairer and just society, have experience with database development and analysis, database administration, GIS mapping, administrative services, please contact Barbara@urbantools.org
