June 7-Dog eat Dog with Steve Sklar

In this talk, Steve Sklar reflects on the respective merits of two rival
views of how we ought most wisely to live in society, one that might be
called the Dog-Eat-Dog View and the other, the Cooperative View. Steve
will consider the insights of Henry George that are relevant to the
topic, including the persistent influence of the Wages Fund Theory, the
main source of adulation accorded to the “alpha,” and the roles that
various types of cooperation play in the production of wealth. Although
Steve gave a version of this talk at Arden, Delaware, last November, in
this session he will also ruminate on these two rival world views from
the perspective of the Covid-19 pandemic.


Steve Sklar has given talks on Henry George’s insights at the Ethical
Culture Society of Essex County, New Jersey, and Arden, Delaware. For
three years recently he taught courses on George’s writings at the Henry
George School of Social Science in Manhattan. His parents introduced him
to those writings when Steve was a teenager. His father, the late Dave
Sklar, taught the P&P course at the George School in New York for 17 years.

By day, Steve practices immigration law. Before becoming a lawyer, he
worked in film and video production. His hobbies include storytelling
and group improv.
