Why the rich are getting richer

The New Economics Foundation have recently published a study on why the rich are getting richer. The report focuses on the last two years and looks at both social and economic causes. For those who have studies the writings of Henry George there may be a little disappointment that the authors did not take the trouble to look back at what great writers of the past had to say on the subject and that it is not anything new. On the positive side it looks like nef have reconnected with some of the policies advocated by their founder James Robertson and their recommendations include taxing land values.
