Welcome to the Association for Good Government PDF Print E-mail


We are an organisation that believes that the growing problems we are experiencing can be combated far more effectively by securing our natural rights than by authoritarian controls.

Though we may not immediately see it, the natural right we need most is the right to land. Without it, we cannot begin to exercise our right to work, relish the fruits of our labour, or achieve a dignified existence.


This is the teaching of Henry George, American economist and social philosopher whose ideas and principles the Association propagates through submissions, courses, seminars, articles and its bi-monthly magazine Good Government.

PRIMARY LITERATURE STUDY & READING COURSE.
THE SCIENCE OF POLITICAL ECONOMY: BOOK 1.

THE MEANING OF
POLITICAL ECONOMY

4:00 – 7:00 pm. Saturday. 15th of May 2021



The earliest, and as I think sufficient, definition of Political Economy, is, the science that treats of the nature of wealth, and of the laws of its production and distribution. But as this definition seems never to have been fully understood and adhered to by the accepted teachers of political economy, and has during late years been abandoned by those who occupy the position of official teachers in all our leading colleges and universities, let us, beginning at the beginnings, endeavour to see for ourselves just what political economy is. (Henry George)

"Men like Henry George are rare unfortunately. One cannot imagine a more beautiful combination of intellectual keenness, artistic form and fervent love of justice. Every line is written as if for our generation. The spreading of these works is a really deserving cause, for our generation especially has many and important things to learn from Henry George."
- Albert Einstein
