We're also happy to introduce a new segment today: Commonwealth Kingston, hosted by Evelyn Wright of Commonwealth Hudson Valley. Evelyn's first guest is economist Bill Batt. A former university professor, Batt was invited to the newly created NYS Legislative Tax Study Commission to research and evaluate the state’s tax regimes. In 1992 he retired to explore the economic philosophy of Henry George, and to promote George’s Single Tax on land value and that will be a topic of conversation today.
