Josh Vincent of the Center for Study of Economics travels to St. Louis, MO to help us explain better ways to improve the attractiveness of our region by removing taxes from productive activity and deriving revenue only from the location value of land that is caused by our community's creative activity. We really appreciate their dedication to this important change in thinking. We need reform in the system NOW and Josh and the Center are doing just that.

The Center for the Study of Economics, in Philadelphia, PA is the world leader in helping communities convert from the property tax to a tax on land value exempting all buildings such as homes , offices , factories, stores, warehouses, and farm buildings, saving building owners millions and millions of dollars in property taxes, by gradually, over several years, shifting taxs off of buildings and onto land, thus encouraging investment in buildings and labor and discouraging holding valuable land idle.

CSE has been the world leader in helping local governments to be a practical help to its community through constuctive tax policy reform. Most local governments tax the wrong people for the wrong reasons; by following the advice of CSE they can limit the harm and expand the good that they do for the community as a whole. What Milton Freidman called the "least bad of all taxes" not only funds local government, but it actually influences investors to help out the community with additional investment.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Through many years.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Raise more funds.
