      The ideal is to collect the full economic rent, which
      is that portion not needed to put land to its best
      use, implying leaving some rental untaxed if it
      facilitates a real estate market, in which case it is
      not theft but really part of the wages for exchanging
      land.

      Does that not steal from the lender?

      It can't be a fact, since there is no such thing as
      land investment.
