Andelson has provided an interdisciplinary, international collection of essays, which has been in the making for twenty years. This is not a book on the history of economic thought but rather a book about the theory and practice of land reform and an historical summary of efforts to apply land value taxation in different countries around the world.

A distinguished interdisciplinary group of scholars examines the merits and shortcomings of Land-Value taxation, and how it compares and contrasts with the conventional property tax. The latter is shown as deterring enterprise to the detriment of employment and as pushing up the cost of improving property with inflationary consequences. The former, with evidence from places where it is already in use, is shown to encourage optimum land use, foster employment, and prevent urban sprawl.

This study of the strategic, policy and operational characteristics of Land Value Taxation is a unique and original contribution to Elston knowledge. McCluskey and Franzsen provide a clear and detailed synthesis of existing Land Value Taxation systems and address the perceived advantages and disadvantages of such systems. The implications of this work, based on a two-tier analysis of selected countries, will be critical in terms of informing policy makers when contemplating reviews of existing Land Value Taxation systems or its possible introduction. The empirical research underpinning this work has attempted to concisely provide the role of land value systems within the selected case study countries. The work has clearly identified a number of challenges being faced by those countries and jurisdictions that currently utilise land value tax systems. Given these challenges this book is timely in that it provides detailed expositions of property tax systems that are undergoing significant change and reform.

This paper describes the many disadvantages associated with the National Non-Domestic (Business) Rates in the UK, and proposes replacing them with a Land Value Tax as proposed in the Mirrlees Review. It describes the impact of such a proposal, and proposes the details of a feasibility study that should be conducted by Treasury. Such a reform would reduce the burden of rates on premises that make good use of their site, while increasing the financial costs for sites that are poorly used, underdeveloped, derelict or being held out of use until their sale price rises. Owners of these sites would either have to make good use of their site or sell it to somebody who will. This would make land available for enterprise, stimulate economic growth in areas where the local economy is struggling and provide employment opportunities for local people.
