Happy Birthday Henry George!

Happy Birthday Henry George! Today, September 2nd, marks what would be the 175th birthday of the political economist and grandfather of CLT thought. Henry George’s work laid the philosophical groundwork for the community land trusts of today. He even inspired the founder of the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy, now an essential partnerĀ of the National Community Land Trust Network. (Lincoln Institute of Land Policy website)
