      To me it appears Marx never thought of what George thought through, which was only based on others before him. Marx concentrated near 100% on Capital as the problem that created grinding poverty. I am sure he did recognize in the end what George made millions aware of, as he was a highly intelligent man, however it would have reversed most of his life's work. Fred Harrison did pick up on that Marx did understand land, but he gave it so little coverage that amounted only to a few lines here and there.

      Fred Harrison did a critique, in a newspaper or mag, on Marx. Does anyone know where it is on the web?
