"…remains a wonderful introduction to economics." --Tyler Cowen

About the Author

"Born in Philadelphia in 1839, Henry George went on to San Francisco and became a newspaper edi­tor who addressed the social problems of his day. On a visit to New York, he was shocked by the contrast between wealth and poverty. He resolved to find a solution, if he could, and the result was Progress and Poverty in 1879, which is said to be the all-time best selling book on economics. George's fame led him to be drafted by the United Labor Party to run for Mayor of New York in 1886. George lost to Abram Hewitt (and Theodore Roosevelt came in third). He traveled and lectured exten­sively around the world, and wrote several more influential books, in­cluding Social Problems, Protection or Free Trade (which was read in its entirety into the US Con­gressional Record) and The Condition of Labor, an open letter to Pope Leo XIII in response to his encyclical Rerum Novarum. George died in 1897 at the height of his second campaign for Mayor of New York. His last book, The Science of Political Economy, was published the following year."
