It’s Government that’s shutting down our High Streets

If society collected the Annual Ground Rent (i.e. LVT) our high streets would be fully occupied, because the site rental value is the amount a business can afford to pay — its full surplus. Arbitrary taxation demands more and so kills the businesses.

Desolate high streets are just one devastating result of the Government choice not to collect socially-generated Annual Ground Rent.

Site rental values are the Net Income of the country that can be collected IN FULL without any requirement to repress wealth-creating enterprises with taxes on employment or profits (Income Taxes, VAT, Corporation Tax etc).
