True Free Market; conversations on gaining liberty and justice through economics, by Steven Taft (2015), published by iUniverse
Description: 
Panelists will pose the Henry George Theorem in terms of a picture of society battling within diametric poles of “democracy” and “capitalism.” Whereas the capitalist would maximize gain without concern for social and income inequality, the small “d” democrat would use government to assure that moral suasion and Constitutional rights put limits on capitalists maximizing their yields. Steve suggests an aspirational technique of letting free markets work will allow land value taxes to be quantified and made available for use by the community for all the services constituents need.
