The ‘mystery’ of low wages

The ‘mystery’ of low wages – Editor

” When nonproducers can claim as rent a portion of the wealth created by producers, the right of the producers to the fruits of their labour is to that extent denied. ”

– Henry George, Progress and Poverty

Editorial commentary: Many Georgists now recognise that tackling the obscene growth of inequality in the modern world requires taxing the earnings and/or wealth of the extremely rich and that this should be the main focus, since it is the financiers, investment bankers and chief executives who now receive most of the rents.
