In the era of Trump and the Resistance, hate is considered more than an emotion; it is considered a problem. We are told it fuels divisions, psychologically damages its targets and perhaps even promotes violence. Is there any truth to this? After all, what one person deems a hateful attitude, another might see as a passionately held belief. This event will truly explore our mutual hatreds, and whether it is possible to tolerate views we find personally objectionable.

Land Value Capture: Theory and Practice

Public infrastructure has long played an instrumental role in the growth of our cities and largely accounts for the observed increase in land values. And yet, our funding mechanisms have failed to tap into this vast source of publicly created wealth, allowing it to be pocketed by private landlords. In this 5-session course, Dr. Marty Rowland traces the theory of Land Value Capture back to the work of Henry George and discusses its potential for driving the rebirth of our cities.
