Christophers shows that land makes up a staggering share of national 
wealth. Using the UK as his laboratory, he finds that, out of total 
national wealth of £9.8tn, land accounted for £5tn and houses and other 
structures added another £3.5tn on top of that.  The ownership of land 
acts as a store of wealth and, as the rents rack up, so grows inequality 
of incomes and wealth, while restricting the productive power of an economy.
