Georgism (otherwise known as geoism) is an economic philosophy holding that the economic value derived from land, including natural resources and natural opportunities, should belong equally to all residents of a community, but that people own the value that they create themselves.
Most Georgists support:
• A broad-based land value taxation scheme, either to mostly or entirely replace existing harmful taxes on income, consumption, and corporations.
• The social redistribution of this revenue either directly, through a Citizens' Dividend, or indirectly, through government programs, to citizens.
• Some (but not all) forms of market intervention by the state.
• The abolition of tariffs, quotas, patents, and other barriers to trade and commerce.
The Georgist paradigm crosses the left-right political divide. This means that there are statist, anarchist, progressive, and conservative Georgists.
