My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Center for the Study of Economics, Philadelphia, PA, USA
The Center has provided excellent support for my effort to permanently reduce property taxes in Queens, NYC for properties that are not vacant and not under-utilized. Every day we see politicians wringing their hands about public services and limited money to provide them, while land value revenue waits to be collected from those not fully utilizing urban land. With the little revenue that is collected, cities provide tax breaks to wealthy developers to provide what could be otherwise funded if an equitable system of land value taxation were in effect. A big lose-lose.
