Henry George has been widely pigeonholed and dismissed as a singletaxer. Actually, he was a profound and original economist. He independently arrived at several of the most characteristic insights of the ‘Austrian’ School, which is enjoying a revival nowadays. Yet George scorned the Austrians of his time, and their present-day successors show scant appreciation of his work. An apparent lapse in intellectual communication calls for repair.
