Chicago - A Film from the Chicago Board Of Education on Vimeo
"This is a film I found at an estate sale on the south side of Chicago. It merely said "Chicago" and "Print 1" on the canister. I bought it because I was intrigued as to what might live inside.
Well, its hard to say exactly what this is. Its a film by the Chicago Board Of Education, produced sometime in the 1940s. I only know this because the narrator died in a horrible plane wreck around that time."

Tax land, not buildings, to help cities thrive - Opinion - The Boston Globe
Ed Glaeser goes full Georgist:
"Property taxes today generally consider both land and the buildings on them. But George understood something important: that taxing buildings to some degree discourages new building. Under a land tax, in contrast, a developer pays the same amount if the land is used for a parking lot, a single-family house, or a soaring skyscraper."
