I have been requested by Graham Slater to post the following topic for discussion:

Recently I went to listen to the economist Fred Harrison talk: He thinks this slump will last 10 years, because as factories close, no new jobs will be created because of high taxation on labour and production and the only remedy to prevent this is reform of the tax system through a shift onto land value based taxation and away from production and labour. This will stop the boom and bust cycle in the property market and banks giving and withdrawing credit on a speculative basis.

He also believes in the Jubilee theory where all debts should be wiped off periodically. This comes from the book Leviticus in the Old Testament of the Bible.

Fred Harrison has been in contact with Gordon Brown since 1997 and has been trying to tell him of the oncoming disaster to no avail. He has now launched a website which includes a video on You Tube: www.renegadeeconomist.com - for the video click on the YouTube box: renegade economist.

Regards
Graham Slater
