This land is your land. This land is my land. A square foot in Manhattan is worth thousands of acres in a land remote from community. This is because our community creates the value. Here is clearly expounded a plan of collecting the wealth generated by the community to meet the needs of the community. The just principle is pay for what you use, keep what you produce.
The left and right argue about government charity programs, but might we not all agree that "charity is false and futile when offered as a substitute for justice." How foolish to trade our birthright for a bowl of soup. Here is a fresh look at Henry George's plan for sharing the earth, while increasing our prosperity.
His emphasis that the change is first of all a change of heart in individuals and then a political/economic change is excellent.
Other books that convey the message well are those by Fred Harrison and Walter Rybeck, from whom Adams has taken many ideas, with acknowegement.
Now that I have had a chance to read Sharing the Earth, I want to recommend this book as highly as possible. I've studied economic theories for years, and Martin totally opened my eyes to a fresh way of thinking about land and private property.
Martin Adams' writing harkens back to classical ideas about land and prosperity from pivotal authors like Jean Jacques Rousseau and Thomas Paine. Like them, he proposes a revolutionary or evolutionary new approach to property and taxation. His theory on how to change the valuation of land, in my opinion, profoundly contributes to the awakened values we need in our new global age.
Sharing the Earth is a modern breakthrough that deserves to be on the reading list of anyone who cares about the ways that together we can create a sustainable future on our planet.

Learning that, and linking out to other, more rational discussions of replacing all taxes we a division of land rent income was a wonderful find, intellectually stimulate and well worth the small price of an eBook.
Skip the heavy handed preaching. The description of the solution is all one needs
