Geonomist: Citizen's Dividend - Share the Rent: "The New York Times (Spt 10): "The New York Times (Spt 10): “One Iraqi proposed a simple solution instantly endorsed by the other men on the sidewalk: 'Divide the money equally. Give each Iraqi his share on the first day of every month.' That is essentially the same idea in vogue among liberal foreign aid experts, conservative economists and a diverse group of political leaders in America and Iraq.”"

"Prof Frank Stilwell of U of Sydney, School of Economics and Political Science, submitted to the federal Productivity Commission Inquiry Into First Home Ownership a paper comparing the advantages of taxing land value all along over taxing land sales as they crop up."
