The American economist Henry George (1839-1897) has left a legacy in both economic theory and public opinion, and the two sometimes stand in each other's way.

A conference will be held at Maastricht University to address these and related issues that the work of Henry George poses. Papers in any of these fields are welcome. Conference languages are English, Dutch and German. For further information please contact:
