The questions raised in Mr. George's book, Progress and Poverty, are so many and so large that to discuss them adequately would require a book at least as large as his own. 1 propose to deal this evening only with the main thesis of his book?viz., that the private ownership of land is the cause of the poverty that accompanies progress, or at least is the cause that progress does not put an end to poverty ; and that the remedy for poverty is to abolish the private ownership of land without compensation to the owner. And I propose to deal with this question entirely on economic grounds.
