Economist HENRY GEORGE (1839-1897) was, at the height of his popularity in the 1880s and 1890s, considered the third most famous American, behind Mark Twain and Thomas Edison, and his liberal philosophies on taxation, copyrights, poverty issues, and more continue to influence progressive movements today. This is George's grand overview of the science and philosophy of economics, from the largest question-what do we mean by "civilization"?-to the most specific: what is the difference between money and wealth?
