Henry George's Works: Digital Archive

Progress and Poverty

Robert Schalkenbach Foundation, 1987

This classic bestseller in political economy launched a worldwide movement for the abolition of privilege and poverty—by eliminating the root cause, land monopoly. Ever since the publication of Progress and Poverty, advocates of liberty and justice have responded to its clarion call: “To abolish all taxation save that upon land values.”

Robert Schalkenbach Foundation, 2006

The Science of Political Economy

Henry George believed that, “[O]f all the sciences, political economy is that which to civilized men of today is of most practical importance.” In his last work, George presents economic principles in a logical, encyclopedic system, encompassing concepts of wealth, ownership, value, money and semantics.

Social Problems

Doubleday & McClure Company, 1898

“The progress of civilization requires that more and more intelligence be devoted to social affairs, and this not the intelligence of the few, but that of the many. We cannot safely leave politics to politicians, or political economy to college professors. The people themselves must think, because the people alone can act.” Many readers consider this collection of essays to be the best introduction to the ideas of Henry George.
