Norbergs In Defence of Global Capitalism is awesome. It's first book on free market that I ever read.

If you don't have any money you have to put your labor into something first.

I used to not take anti-globalization movement seriously. How could they possibly believe that? But apparently they do.

"These peasants were poor, until the government gave them land" - by buying this land from richer owners.

Well, not my idea of promoting capitalism.

Andris Birkmanis:

I think he meant that the land was nationalised, i.e. owned by the government, but sold off to the people. Homesteading land is kind of a lot trickier than just selling people contract rights over property.

I propose a pro-globalisation movement to counter them :D

Even Marx thought that the early industrialisation stages of capitalism were a 'necessary transition phase' from feudalism. Even he would have been in favour of globalisation and against government tariffs which benefit corporate entities exempt from any competition purchasing labour power in poverty stricken communities at dirt cheap prices. Hence, the anti-globalisation protesters are merely prolonging a necessary stage of essential (ugly though it may be) stage of development.
