Philadelphia needs land tax, too

Henry George Foundation’s Josh Vincent had a nice op-ed in Thursday’s Philadelphia Bulletin, noting that there is a good case for cutting taxes on work and investment, and a good case for increasing the budget to pay for needed services.  His point is that this doesn’t have to be an either/or choice.  By taxing land adequately, taxes can be cut and service maintained or improved. No great revelation to Georgists, but it’s good to see it in a major newspaper.
