Fred Harrison's Video: Ricardo's Law: House Prices and the Great Tax Clawback Scam

a YouTube video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ZkfmY1PMng

Fred Harrison, a London-based writer on economics (Boom-Bust 2010, Wheels of Fortune, The Corruption of Economics, etc.) has made a 7 minute video which describes the premise of his book of the same title. While he is discussing something universal, it may be easier for the American viewer to understand it when considering the effects in another country.

Among the topics Fred explores are a number of themes on the Wealth and Want website:
