Our Land Our Rent Our Jobs

Our Land, Our Rent, Our Jobs abounds with new ideas ... they must be debated, for only in this manner can a solution to the crisis be found.”

dr thami mazwai

With a foreword by Nobantu Mbeki

Land rent can provide jobs for all if we just collect it instead of taxing those who create wealth or seek merely to survive. This rent, or the locational advantage of each piece of land, is owed to the community, whose grant of security of tenure enables the owner to enjoy its man-made and natural advantages. Rent has been a phenomenon since the time of the Physiocrats and Adam Smith, but its potential has been ignored and the world has got lost in an economic jungle of its own making.

This book is based on a very simple proposal: replace most taxation with collection of land and other natural resource rentals. It shows the way to the broad uplands of prosperity for all, and explains why it is time for us to talk about rent!

It taps into the current debate in the media and economic and political circles around resource rentals in South Africa, and outlines practical steps that can be taken to a different tax regime. This book is highly relevant and topical, and offers much to stimulate further debate whilst offering something positive and workable.

Runaway Comrade

"RUNAWAY COMRADE FINALLY TELLS HIS STORY”

Bob de la Motte is best remembered for his epic duels in the ‘80s with nine-times Comrades winner, Bruce Fordyce. Who can forget the 1986 Comrades where, following the legendary handshake 14km from the finish and running 5:26, De la Motte was narrowly beaten by the unstoppable Fordyce. Both runners broke the 1984 record of 5:27.

De la Motte has written Runaway Comrade against the backdrop of SA in the politically charged ‘80s in honour of the Comrades Marathon and some of his less fortunate fellow South African runners. “Many of these trail-blazing black distance runners from the apartheid era have simply disappeared; their triumphs ignored and possibly forgotten by those who should be honouring them,” says De la Motte.

The Genius Programme Cover Front Thumb Small

The Genius Programme

Just as our computers and electronic devices need software updates to keep them performing at their peak, so does the human brain. As we make our way through life we adopt thought patterns, belief systems and attitudes – habits of thinking – that run automatically in the background, affecting our behaviour and the choices we make. While some of these ‘programmes’ are helpful, others are disfunctional and outdated – they undermine our self-confidence, stifle our creativity, and limit our true potential. And worse, we’re often not aware of them! The Genius Programme is a simple yet powerful programme designed to help you identify and free yourself from habits of thinking that no longer contribute to positive development in your life.
