Please Explain ESR

ESR stands for economic scarcity rent. Most people just talk of "economic rent" but I add the scarcity for descriptive purposes...

n : the return derived from cultivated land in excess of that derived from the poorest land cultivated under similar conditions

Could you explain further? Your entire theory rests on the validity of this concept - so you may want to make it as clear as possible.

Perhaps some links would be in order?

FWIW, ESR is a long-recognized economic concept.  The term "economic rent" is even listed in Webster's.  However, a more detailed examination of economic rent as it relates to land values may be found here:

Personally, I like the LAT better.  :)
