Forum on Geonomics
Sometimes called the Geonomy Society, we are an IRS 501c3 nonprofit educational organization whose mission is to raise public awareness of the role of land in economies and society, noting who under the present arrangement of property without duty benefits and who does not.
Experience shows that were society to adopt a more responsible mode of ownership, everyone – kids, animals, even those now enjoying great privilege – would be better off.
Dividing fairly the worth of Earth does not mean anyone must sacrifice; indeed, coupled with repeal of counterproductive taxes, it would even be good for business.
Forum President is Jeffery Smith. A member of Mensa, he lives in Portland Oregon in the Pacific Northwest. While we are headquartered in Portland Oregon, our funders and members are active in all corners of the globe. Though not yet large, our people are key in the movement for land justice, such as VP Gary Flo (prof at the university) in Burlington Vermont, Mark Sullivan (administrator at the Schalkenbach Fdn) in New York, Dr. Herb Barry (emeritus Carnegie-Mellon) in Pittsburgh PA, Joe Johnston (ret. priest) in North Carolina, Nadine Stoner (President of Common Ground – USA) in Wisconsin, Wendell Fitzgerald (President of the Henry George School – San Francisco) in California, and Gregg Erickson, PhD (consultant and journalist) in Alaska. In Oregon, activists for geonomic justice include Forum President Jeffery Smith (editor), Jeff Strang (building inspector), Tessa Uber (builder), and others.
Feeling inspired? Join us! Together we’ll make a difference, the difference that really counts. The problems that wrong-headed laws, customs, and economic policies foment, those are the very problems that geonomics can solve. Now … have fun!
