HGI's new courses: Getting the Word Out
- Good day, Georgist colleagues
As you probably know, for many years the Henry George Institute has offered
a 3-course series in *Principles of Political Economy*. Since 1996, the
first in that series, *Understanding Economics*, has been attracting
students via the World Wide Web. Then, early last year, we unveiled the
third course in the series, *Economic Science* ( www.politicaleconomy.org )
in conjunction with the publication of the new abridged edition of Henry
Georges *Science of Political Economy*.
Now we are happy to annouce the completion of the series, with the
introduction of course #2 -- *Applied Economics: Globalization and Trade*
at www.truefreetrade.org .
Because of the topicality of its theme, we've decided to allow new students
to enroll in this course (those who haven't completed *Understanding
Economics* will be required to complete an additional, introductory
lesson). We think this will add significantly to HGI's visibility, and
bring in many new students.
However -- there is LOADS of material out there on the issues of
globalization and trade! How will he get OUR high-quality stuff in front of
That's where you come in. We need a team of web-surfers, who will go out
there to blogs, discussion boards and email lists, and talk up what the HGI
has to offer. We need to find related websites and ask for reciprocal
links. We need to offer a polite "cyber-tap on the shoulder" to everyone
out there who might be interested. In short, we need all of you to talk up
these educational opportunities -- to everyone who might be interested
(online and off)!
If you have any time and energy that you would be willing to give to this
project, please write back, and I'll provide some details on how to get
