Single Tax Party

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Single Tax Party started as the Land Value Tax Party in 1910 and was renamed the Commonwealth Land Party for the presidential campaign of 1924.[1] Its single-issue platform was based on the free-market tax reform principles defined and popularized by American political economist and public intellectual Henry George, the ideology now called Georgism, which proposed a single tax based on the value of land.[2]
