Henry George

I believe Henry George argued that taxing land values, society could recapture the value of its common inheritance, and eliminate the need for taxes on productive activities.

What were the counter argument(s)? Why didn't all economists accept George's arguments?

@bobsal u1553115,
I don't have a rebuttal. I find his arguments persuasive. However, most economists are not Georgians, so I wondered why?
