While I apologize for another link to my blog, I think people might find this interesting: Greenhouse Externalities.  Its a brief explanation of externality logic and why AGW doesn't call for what its proponents have been asking for in terms of redistributive justice.

And just for good measure, they're all collected in the Ultimate Beginner meta-thread  yes

It is back, but unfortunately none of the old blog is available.  I'm horrible at backing up my databases, although I suppose I should do it more often.

Reading the abstract of this paper, I'm highly looking forward to reading it:

http://mises.org/journals/scholar/Murphy6.pdf

 

The conventional argument for government  provision of defense is that military 
expenditures exhibit large positive externalities.  As the Coase Theorem demonstrates, in 
a world of zero transactions costs, individuals could sign binding contracts and achieve 
an efficient level of defense expenditures without coercion.  The present paper shows that 
the institutions of insurance and call options could allow private markets in the real world 
to approximate the zero transactions cost outcome.

I did use some of those, but not all. Furthermore, I include many not on there.
