To reforming economics as an interpretation of reality, rather than a diversion play for monopolists.

    Intellectual property as a barrier to competition

    Intellectual property as a barrier to competition

    This is the seventh edition of our Georgist podcourse and again we delve into another form of power. Intellectual property has become a huge part of our lives as we tip toe in between patents, copyrights and trademarks. Have these been construed too much in favour of the innovator? Or are there other factors establishing the barriers to competition? Regular themes again pop up as we digest Georgist perspectives on property from another vantage point. Remember 'Everything is a Remix!' Great doco.Show Notes.

    Economic Concentration and Natural Monopolies

    Economic Concentration and Natural Monopolies

    This is episode 6 of the Georgist Podcourse. Both natural resource rents and natural monopolies increase in value with little effort from the owner. Despite this our economic policy barely recognises these natural advantages. We delve into the regulatory pressures the government faces as various interest groups are favoured over others. Another reminder to read more Hansard. Show notes - some good ones to jot down here.  

    Pathways to Custodianship

    Pathways to Custodianship

    Now we get down to the practicalities in the 5th Georgist podcourse. We discuss the best practices for ensuring the pathway to custodianship over consumerism is possible. Geeky but essential, the local and state government policy levers are presented as counter-manoeuvres to established political and economic thought. Check the show notes for links to important research.

    Karl takes us through the 4th episode of the Renegade's Georgist podcourse, with a call out to your inner tax geek. Adam Smith's Canons of Taxation provide a backdrop for analysing the need for beneficiary pays to be more prominent in tax reform analysis. We finish with the Marxist distraction away from the necessary analysis of monopoly power.  Show notes.

    Why is Location revered as a real estate strategy, but ignored in economics?

    Why is Location revered as a real estate strategy, but ignored in economics?

    The Renegades Podcourse #3: Land is the central tenet of Georgist understanding, but yet our most valuable asset is ignored in economics, ignored in the policy setting - unless it starts to falter. Land represents natural resources above and below us. It also represents land-like assets, that share a similar natural monopoly status. So it is crucial to determining both wealth distribution and societal efficiencies. Let’s dig in deeper. A short clip is included featuring Jacob Schwartz-Lucas on the key ingredient - the law of rent. Show notes.

    Justice before Liberty, ok!

    Justice before Liberty, ok!

    Part 2 of Karl’s Georgist course - the key essentials to understanding behind this timeless philosophy. We discuss first principles including birth rights, primary factors of production, justice, liberty and the importance of effective redistribution policy. Why is the most essential aspect to life on earth ignored by economics? Show notes.
