Georgism – Wikipedia

Karl Marx considered the Single Tax platform as a regression from the transition to communism and referred to Georgism as “Capitalism’s last ditch”.[99] Marx argued that, “The whole thing is … simply an attempt, decked out with socialism, to save capitalist domination and indeed to establish it afresh on an even wider basis than its present one.”[100] Marx also criticized the way land value tax theory emphasizes the value of land, arguing that, “His fundamental dogma is that everything would be all right if ground rent were paid to the state.”[100] Georgists such as Fred Harrison (2003) replied to these Marxist objections.[101]
