Henry George proved that landowners are allowed to extract Rent from the land they own. He, and Georgists in general, argue that the government should levy a 100% land value tax to collect all of this Rent from the landowners. This sounds political but my question is how much extra Rent can possibly be collected by the government than what is already collected?

A Georgist says the Rent collected would double from 50% lvt to 100% lvt:
