This talk will explore the reasons why a wealthy nation like the UK fails to
meet the housing needs of its citizens. It will demonstrate how the current
housing market distorts the proper functioning of a free economy and is the
root cause of the increasing gap between rich and poor. It will show how the
commodification of land turns the competitive market into a monopoly over
the citizen's natural right to a home.
Finally, it will argue that there are natural economic laws which, if
understood and applied, would remedy the housing crisis and assure that the
economy could function freely and for the common good.
If you seek to explore Economics and the Social Sciences and to bring
even accepted theories to the test of first principles, then this talk is for
you.
The talk will be delivered at
