How Cities Can Pay for What They Need

Gilbert Tucker was introduced to the ideas of Henry George in the late 19th century, and he found in them a key to understanding the dramatic economic changes of the time. Tucker saw clearly that the accompanying social problems were rooted in faulty land-tenure and taxation policies. Tucker’s contention that land in all its forms constituted the proper source of public revenue was reflected in both his writing and in his active public life.
