Rent of land

Henry George proposed that the rent of land should be paid to the community. This payment would satisfy the equal rights of all other members of the community — without disturbing individual title to land, fixity of tenure and undisturbed possession. This method of making land “common property” may also be called “conditional private property in land” (payment of rent to the community) as opposed to “absolute private property in land” (private collection of rent).
