Secretary Treasurer : Carol Wilcox.. Carol is a software engineer by profession but with a degree in economics.. It was whilst studying at Essex University in the early 80s, disappointed that there appeared to be no satisfactory solutions to economic ills, that she first read about land value taxation.. From that time she was puzzled why 'the only tax which meets all the criteria for a good tax' was ignored by policymakers.. By good  ...   it is something we all need to survive? Over the years, Heather has learnt the economic arguments about how land wealth is created by all of us and why it should be collected and returned to the public purse to pay for the maintenance and development of infrastructure and good public services.. heather.. David Hirst : Vice-Chair.. David Hirst has spent most of his career in IT, thinking about systems and how they work, and helping organisations and people make best use of the opportunities.. He is also an inventor of better ways of doing things, particularly in electricity, but finds the blockages to sensible and efficient changes are largely political.. Too much is blocked by rentier and corporatist thinking by powerful incumbents, driving a failed Hayekian ideology to force ever greater inequalities and injustices..

  • Title: Labour Land Campaign - Land Value Tax
    Descriptive info: Land is a natural resource that existed before mankind walked the earth.. Land values are created by the whole community because of our need to use land for housing, education, public services, agriculture, mining, business, transport and recreation.. Landowners do not create land values.. It is the efforts of others that generate land values.. (Imagine the effect on the price of housing land in an area  ...   increase in land values.. For example, with few exceptions, new motorways or rail systems lead to dramatic increases in land prices.. The planning process often provides landowners with huge windfall gains.. Not only the site to be developed, but often also adjacent or related sites.. The principles of natural justice tell us that land values belong to the whole community and not just a few landowners..

  • Title: Labour Land Campaign - What is Land Value Taxation
    Descriptive info: What is Land Value Taxation.. Most of the things we see around us were made by man.. The buildings we live in, the vehicles we use, the clothes we wear and even most of the food we eat are set in their present form by human effort.. Land is completely different.. No human being has made land, and the value of a piece of land derives from such things as natural fertility, mineral deposits and its position in relation to public utilities, natural harbours, communications and population.. Different pieces of land vary enormously in their value.. An acre of land in the middle of a town, for example, may be worth many thousands of times as much as an acre of remote moorland.. Therefore, a tax on land values is a fair tax, because the person who owns land derives benefit from something which he or she has not made.. The big idea.. First off, the value of every piece  ...   be fixed on the basis of that value.. Of course this wouldn't mean any more overall taxation, because the introduction of Land Value Taxation would permit other taxes to be reduced or, in some cases, to be abolished altogether.. Want to know more?.. Economist Jerry Jones has updated and extended his pamphlet on land value tax and its implementation.. Download it here.. (PDF : 282 KB).. Chapter list:.. [Available to download as separate PDF files].. How land acquires value - and who benefits.. Reclaiming land value for public benefit - the case for a land value tax.. How Harrisburg in the US was transformed through a land value tax.. Valuing the land - how to measure land values.. Differences between a land value tax and other land and property taxes..

  • Title: Labour Land Campaign - Benefits of Land Value Tax
    Descriptive info: Compared to taxes on buildings Land Value Taxation provides a broad tax base because it would include all empty properties and empty sites.. LVT would encourage new capital investment rather than sterile land speculation as it would encourage a shift of private investment from land speculation (which creates no extra land but only higher land prices) to productive enterprises.. LVT would encourage the use of empty sites zoned for development, creating more job opportunities and wealth.. LVT would help avoid urban sprawl.. As brown field sites would be developed within towns and cities it would be unnecessary to permit urban sprawl.. Compact towns are also more efficient in their use of resources for transport and other services.. LVT could not be avoided.. (Unlike income tax and business taxes where tax avoidance experts are in great demand and the shadow economy flourishes to evade taxes.. ) Every landowner  ...   For example: with a new railway line most sites (especially those near stations) benefit from big increases in land values but some sites (maybe housing close to the track and suffering from its noise and vibration) would lose some value.. These sites would pay a lower Land Value Tax, providing automatic compensation without any complicated appeals system.. Lower interest rates.. The Bank of England tries to control land price and hence property inflation with a higher base rate.. LVT would act as a damper on escalating land prices, allowing the Bank to lower interest rates for the benefit of homeowners, industry and small firms.. The Government s auction of mobile phone airwaves for 25 years raised 21billion (and of course, the airwaves can be auctioned again in 25 years time!).. Landing slots at airports are also a natural resource that the Government should auction on a periodic basis..
