Our Land, Our Rent, Our Jobs - Uncovering The Explosive Potential For Growth Via Resource Rentals (Paperback): Stephen... Our Land, Our Rent, Our Jobs - Uncovering The Explosive Potential For Growth Via Resource Rentals (Paperback)

A book that taps into the current debate around resource rentals in South Africa, and outlines practical steps that can be taken to a different tax regime.

Land rent can provide jobs for all if we just collect it instead of taxing those who create wealth or seek merely to survive. This rent, or the locational advantage of each piece of land, is owed to the community, whose grant of security of tenure enables the owner to enjoy its man-made and natural advantages. Rent has been a phenomenon since the time of the Physiocrats and Adam Smith, but its potential has been ignored and the world has got lost in an economic jungle of its own making.

This book is based on a very simple proposal: replace most taxation with collection of land and other natural resource rentals. It shows the way to the broad uplands of prosperity for all, and explains why it is time for us to talk about rent! It taps into the current debate in the media and economic and political circles around resource rentals in South Africa, and outlines practical steps that can be taken to a different tax regime. This book is highly relevant and topical, and offers much to stimulate further debate whilst offering something positive and workable.

Widely recognized and admired in countercultural communities but overlooked by the mainstream for decades, Anna Banana has been fearlessly challenging convention as Town Fool and Doktor Anna Freud, producing parodic publications, creating and exchanging artist's stamps and other original artworks and staging banana-themed events that she documents for a network of like-minded artists around the world. It is this vibrant community of creative individuals that has both fueled her work and embraced it, and it is their long history of communicating by mail--welcoming anyone interested in participating--that has laid the groundwork for today's social media networks. Anna Banana is a compelling retrospective of the artist's work and her place in art history. Michelle Jacques traces Banana's evolution from Anne Long to conceptual artist Anna Banana and the breadth of her oeuvre. Craig Saper contemplates the paradox that an artist of her stature could remain virtually unknown while subverting mainstream art and culture so relentlessly and so humorously for so long. Anne Thurmann-Jajes relates the value of the Banana Rag and other publications in publicizing the artist's actions and maintaining contact with other artists. And Edward M. Gomez highlights the importance of Banana's fun, frank and frequently experimental art in engaging new audiences and bridging the historic anti-art practices of Dada and Fluxus and today's contemporary practices. Like the artist herself, this remarkable book will enlighten, engage and surprise.

One-Hour Workouts is the perfect solution for athletes who are pressed for time. These 50 workouts are tightly focused so that athletes can get a quality training session in just one hour. Athletes can choose from base, tempo, or speed workouts in each sport to match their training plan's goal for the day. Former professional triathlete Scott Molina (The Terminator), Mark Newton, and Michael Jacques give athletes smart workouts that will complement their existing training and keep season goals on track even in the busiest of weeks.

Jock Macdonald: Forme En Evolution the french edition of the lavishly illustrated book accompanying an ambitious new retrospective exhibition at the Vancouver Art Gallery. Scottish-born artist Jock Macdonald initially moved to Canada to take up a lecturing position at the Vancouver School of Decorative and Applied Arts, and went on to become a key, formative figure in the Painters Eleven, a group of painters who vigorously promoted abstract painting across Canada. Released to coincide with an ambitious new retrospective exhibition organised by the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, the Robert McLaughlin Gallery and the Vancouver Art Gallery, Jock Macdonald: Forme En Evolution includes contributions by academics and writers including Anna Hudson, Assistant Professor in Canadian Art and Curatorial Studies at York University, Michelle Jacques, Chief Curator at Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, Linda Jansma, Senior Curator at The Robert Mclaughlin Gallery, Oshawa, and Ian Thom, Senior Curator at the Vancouver Art Gallery. Previous publications dedicated to Macdonald's work have not analysed the artist's use of colour which, as an abstractionist and later a borderline Surrealist, was arguably the most significant part of his practice. In this lavishly illustrated book colour reproductions of Macdonald's works can be seen alongside the writings of leading experts in the field of Canadian art history.

Michael Jacques' set of three imaginative and contrasted pieces for clarinet captures the essence of each movement title - the warm breeze wafting over a 'Summer landscape' and the peace, tranquility and refinement of a 'Still life' juxtaposed with the rather brash and upbeat 'Street scene'. Well written for the grades and clearly printed, they will make an ideal contribution to the recital repertoire.

South Africa, like many countries in Africa, is resource rich but the benefits are not shared by the whole population. High levels of unem-ployment are leading to increasing conflict and violence, undermining the brighter future hoped for when apartheid was abolished. The authors set out a proposal to unleash their country's potential for growth in a way that benefits investors and the poorest by reforming taxation - a blueprint for other developing countries. The rapid develop-ment of Taiwan and South Korea in the 1950s and 1960s owed much to a similar, business-friendly tax reform. Governments today tax social ills like tobacco and alcohol to discourage use, but why tax work and investment? The result, the authors reveal, is to make half the country economically unviable, yet economists since Adam Smith have known that a tax on ground rent does not have this adverse effect. As he put it: "Though a part of this revenue should be taken ...in order to defray the expenses of the state, no dis-couragement will thereby be given to any sort of industry." All governments need do is collect the value they create and stop taxing the value created by labour and capital.To achieve this, the authors propose replacing most taxes with land value rentals and, in the case of mining, rolling out the tried and tested gold mine tax formula to the rest of the industry, thus stimulating development and creating more jobs. Such a regime would encourage the owner of land to put it to its best use or sell it for someone else to do so. It would also make viable public investment in new infrastructure projects. These would become self financing, because the uplift in land values, due to the improved amenities, would automatically be captured in higher rentals payable to the government, a kind of virtuous circle.
