Henry George and the Laws of Nature

Talk given to the Henry George Foundation by Joseph Milne 17th March 2017

In Progress and Poverty Henry George frequently calls upon the ‘laws of nature’ or ‘natural law’, or upon universal justice. I would like to explore what he really means by these expressions. One does not find them in current economic theory. Occasionally one hears a politician calling for justice, but hereoften this is more a call for retribution rather than justice. But one never hears them invoke the ‘laws of nature’ or ‘natural law’. Find the full article here.
