John Stuart Mill made essential contributions to social theory, political theory and political economy. He has been called "the most influential English-speaking philosopher of the nineteenth century".

John Mill looked into the duties and right of government in interfering corporation and church property through this essay. He argued changes for property management at his time in this essay “It is intended, in the present paper , to enter somewhat minutely into the subject of Foundations and Endowments, and the rights and duties of the Legislature in respect to them: with the design, first, of showing that there is no moral hindrance or bar to the interference of the Legislature with endowments, though it should even extend to a total change in their purposes; and next, of inquiring, in what spirit, and with what reservations, it is incumbent on a virtuous Legislature to exercise this power.”

The work influenced Henry George who completed his great works of Progress and Poverty that changed America and still influences American life today.

John Mill is known as one of the founders of economics. This is a must-read book for people who are interested in the deepest thoughts about land and property by John Mill, one of the greatest thinkers on the planet.
