“Property is theft”, declaimed Proudhon.  “Property is liberty”, he added, in the bit that no-one remembers.   Property matters and property is full of paradox.  As ownership becomes more intensely unequal, in the face of limited and depleting resources, we face some very difficult and very urgent questions.  Not least, how might we share it better?

Chris Pierson has been teaching politics at the University of Nottingham since the last millennium.  He has spent twenty years reading about property, everything from Pythagoras to Piketty, so you don’t have to!  Skip to the conclusions.  In Volume Three of his Just Property or just listen to this lecture.
