Henry George and Classical Growth TheoryJohn K. Whitaker

Monograph from City and Country.

A Significant Contribution to Modeling Scale Economics.
It is widely recognized that the analysis of economic growth in Henry George's Progress and Poverty was considerably influenced by British classical tradition but what is less perceived is that George made significant extensions to the classical theory. This paper's aim is to provide an interpretation, and to some extent a "rational reconstruction", of George's positive analysis, largely leaving aside the striking normative lessons he drew from it.
