JUNE EVENTS

WEEKEND ACTIVITIES AT THE ASSOCIATION

PRIMARY LITERATURE STUDY & READING COURSE.
THE SCIENCE OF POLITICAL ECONOMY. BOOK FOUR:
THE DISTRIBUTION OF WEALTH

at 2:00 - 5:00 pm Saturday 26th June


In the branch of political economy to which we now turn lies the heart of all economic controversies. For all disputes as to the nature of wealth and all disputes as to the production of wealth will be found at last to have their real ground in the distribution of wealth. Hence, this, as we shall find, is the part of political economy most beset with confusions. But if we move carefully, making sure as we go of the meaning of the words we use, we shall find no real difficulty. (Henry George)

Join us for the fifth session where we discuss the essential topic of distributing wealth – the just & unjust ways.

On line copies for advanced reading of the material are on the following sites:

The Science of Political Economy. Pub. 1898.

PAST EVENTS

 

PRIVATE VIEWING AND DISCUSSION:
THE TRIAL OF THE CHICAGO 7

4:00 - 7:00 pm Sunday 6TH June 2021


The film is based on the infamous 1969 trial of seven defendants charged by the federal government with conspiracy and more, arising from the counter-cultural protests in Chicago at the 1968 Democratic National Convention. The trial transfixed the nation and sparked a conversation about mayhem intended to undermine the U.S. government.

While the movie is available on Netflix for advanced viewing it is suggested, in order to make the discussion more educational, to watch the documentary on the 1968 US Democratic Convention HERE.

PRIMARY LITERATURE STUDY
& READING COURSE.
THE SCIENCE OF POLITICAL ECONOMY.
BOOK THREE:
THE PRODUCTION OF WEALTH

at 2:00 - 5:00 pm Saturday 12th June

But let none expect any great promotion of the sciences, especially in their effective part, unless natural philosophy be drawn out to particular sciences; and again unless these particular sciences be brought back again to natural philosophy. From this defect it is that astronomy, optics, music, many mechanical arts, and what seems stranger, even moral and civil philosophy and logic, rise but little above their foundations, and only skim over the varieties and surface of things, viz., because after these particular sciences are formed and divided off they are no longer nourished by natural philosophy, which might give them strength and increase; and therefore no wonder if the sciences thrive not when separated from their roots. (Francis Bacon, Novum Organum)

For the object of production is the satisfaction of human desires, that is to say it is consumption; and this object is not made capable of attainment, that is to say, production is not really complete, until wealth is brought to the place where it is to be consumed and put at the disposal of him whose desire it is to satisfy. (Henry George)

-----------------------------------------------

SPECIAL COURSE ON
GEORGIST EDUCATION:
THOUGHT EXPERIMENTS IN THE LABORATORIES OF THE MIND.

2:00 - 5:00 pm Saturday 19th June

"Men like Henry George are rare unfortunately. One cannot imagine a more beautiful combination of intellectual keenness, artistic form and fervent love of justice.” (Albert Einstein on Henry George)

Both Henry George and Albert Einstein shared a common scientific method. George called his the mental laboratory while Einstein refered to his as the thought experiment (gendankenexperiment).

Study the history with us & see if you can design your own.
