The Standard Economic Theory of Rent is Immoral and Unjustifiable Ideological Fiction

Updated: Sep 9, 2019

In this paper I will demonstrate: A) that the standard economics theory of rent (and most of the rest of mainstream economics) is ideological fiction, and offer an alternative more realistic analytical framework for understanding rent, and B) why rent payments to landlords (and “rentiers” more broadly for finance, insurance and monopoly products) are mostly property-based extractions without moral or economic justification.
