Our fiscal system is in need of serious and sincere reform and revision. The UK borrows a third of its annual budget and the revenue raised for the remaining two thirds is secured from taxes on our economy, all while expecting growth in this area.
At this meeting of our Land Justice Group we will show the film "The Taxing Question of Land” which shows how land value tax, or LVT, offers a best of both worlds approach, generating government revenue without taxing economic growth. In the backdrop of international financial crisis, many feel that LVT is an idea whose time has come.
"The Taxing Question of Land" is a film that was made by people donating funds through crowd sourcing. It is now complete and it is a project that aims to create an easy to understand, entertaining, punchy and engaging documentary that brings Land Value Tax to life. The film explores whether the introduction of a land value tax could be a viable and responsible alternative to our fiscal system, which is universally agreed to be inefficient.
This film will be followed by a discussion led by Christiana Fatoki the founder and CEO of Visionnaire Consulting a Social Enterprise that promotes Ethical Financial Advice who uses their profits to provide Financial Education to support hard to reach communities. Christiana appears in the film and will take us through some of the arguments and views expressed in the film.
