  Georgism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Some use the term "Geoism", with the meaning of "Geo" deliberately ambiguous.
"Earth Sharing", "Geoism", "Geonomics" and "Geolibertarianism" (see libertarianism) are also preferred by some Georgists, "Geoanarchism" is another one.
These terms reflect a difference of emphasis, and sometimes real differences about how land rent should be spent (citizen's dividend or just replacing other taxes); but all agree that land rent should be fully taxed.

 Geoism, Statism, and Market Anarchism, by Brad Edmonds – anti-state.com
Within the state paradigm, all geoism offers is a redistribution of the tax burden from everyone to landowners.
Moral arguments aside, there are practical problems with geoism as compared to market anarchism (in the context of the state, geoism isn't more or less practical or efficient than what we already have).
In short, while it appears romantic on the surface to redistribute wealth to all the world's population, there is nothing in geoism, morally or practically, in a statist or libertarian context, to recommend it.

 Edward H. Clarke / Geoism and the Practice of Public Economics
I have long been sympathetic to the Geoist position, and to the extent that you will let me characterize my views as Geoclassical rather than Neoclassical, Geoism represents a position that many in the public economics profession can gradually be attracted to, as I was over the course of thirty years.
In some respects, I propose to present geoism as social art -- in part science, in part politics (the art of the possible) and part political philosophy (converting the impossible to the possible).
Geoism came fast to me, however, in the mid-1960's in working for a land economics consulting firm, curiously named the Real Estate Research Corporation.

 Australian Centre for Democracy and Justice’s Blog » Blog Archive » Geoism
I’ve come across Geoism a few times before in a few different conversations with people involved in the Geoist movement.
Geoism is an idea put forward by Henry George.
This is understandable considering it’s a 19th Centrury idea but I can’t help feeling that Geoism’s environmental credentials are perhaps overstated.

 LP: Geoanarchism
Therefore, many adherents are now calling the doctrine "geoism," geo standing both for land (as in geography) and for George.
Geoism is a theory of economic justice and efficiency.
Geoism is therefore in accord with liberty, and is the philosophy best suited to a society free of state oppression and tyranny.

 Fred Foldvary / Coming to Terms with Our Terms   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
I introduced the term "geoism" in The Connection, a libertarian periodical, as a substitute for "Georgism" several years ago and as far as I know this was the first usage of it.
I have no desire to do away with the term "Georgism", but feel that a more generic term is also desirable, for the same reasons that Jeff Smith set forth in his Georgist Journal article.
There is no "one size fits all" in applying geoism.

 Geoism and The Progress Report   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Geoism is pretty simple, but it has a lot of implications, and most people like to study those for a while before they decide whether geoism is a great idea.
For instance, one implication of geoism is a total end to corporate welfare, both within a country and internationally (as operated by the IMF, which should be closed).
Keep visiting The Progress Report and you will get a taste of what geoism is all about.

 The Free Liberal: Socio-Economics
Followers of the economics of Henry George should be very glad that legal scholars are taking an interest in economics and seek better policies and economic understanding.
The approach of socio-economics is friendly to geoclassical economics, geonomics, and geoism.
Socio-economics and geoism have much in common, and I see a great future for geoists and socio-economists working together.

The Pilgrims changed their economic system from communism to geoism; the land was still owned in common and could not be sold or inherited, but each family was allotted a portion, and they could keep whatever they grew.
The governor "assigned to every family a parcel of land, according to the proportion of their number for that end."

 Mises Economics Blog: Comment on Bolivian Gas Nationalization OK According to The New York Times
On the other hand, there are geoists who are strongly anti-business and see geoism as more of a means to steal profits, usually by attributing most profits to land rent, and the capability of "charging high interest" to "land monopoly".
I've also noticed that under geoism it is possible to extort profits from businesses.
All you have to do is tell the government you're making a high bid on their land (enough to just about capture profit), forcing them to revise up the site rental.

 What's Wrong with Economics?
This Georgist school has focused on the policy of using land rent for public revenue, unlike the other schools, incorporating also some theory from other schools of thought.
Its adherents are now calling it "geo-economics" or "geoism." As an economist, I have been interested in promoting dialogue among the members of different schools of economic thought.
I organized a session on "Dialogues in Economics" at a conference in 1995, which brought together representatives of various schools.

 EarthSharing
It stresses the role played by taxes in creating debt and unemployment - and gives the lie to misconceptions that the environment needs to be pillaged and plundered in order to consume our way out of the debt trap.
This model is known under names other than EarthSharing ("Geoism", "Geonomics", "Environmental Economics"), and derives its necessary revenues from charges upon the title-holders of land and other natural resource licences.
By replacing taxes with resource revenues, the damaging results of taxation are obviated.

As Foldvary points out at the outset of his essay, using the term “anarchist” is just, well, offputting to most.

At this point, the radical Right and the radical Left begin converge.
"Third way" economic ideologies from the Left (syndicalism, guild socialim, council communism) are remarkably similar to those from the Right (distributism, geoism and agrarian populism).
Similarly, advocates of "fl power" and advocates of "white power" (or "brown power" or " red power" or "yellow power") often have much more in common that any of these do with the liberal-bourgeoise.
