The Altucher Confidential

You've just got to check this one out.  This guy is quite a character and I don't think he's ever had a dull post.  He's got some flawed views on political issues, but luckily he rarely gets into that, plus he's still come to the conclusion that it's all a racket anyway.



...regularly described as the oldest law blog; at least, no one seems to be able to name one that’s older. Its founder and predominant writer is Walter Olson.  Sure he's a Cato fellow, but this is just his personal little endeavor: "exploring an American legal system that too often turns litigation into a weapon against guilty and innocent alike, erodes individual responsibility, rewards sharp practice, enriches its participants at the public’s expense, and resists even modest efforts at reform and accountability."


Eric Peters Autos

The tagline says it all: "Automobiles, Motorcycles, and Libertarian Politics."  This guy is a gearhead of the best kind...knows his stuff, doesn't hold back, and hates the State.


Four Hour Workweek

If you're not familiar with Tim Ferriss, you should be.  His seminal work is The Four Hour Workweek, an incredibly useful guide to entreprenuership and designing the lifestyle you desire.  Ferriss is sometimes referred to as a "life-hacker", a guy who finds interesting and creative ways to make life more fulfilling, more productive, and more fun.  This guy's story and the things he's been able to accomplish are incredibly inspiring, interesting, and just plain cool.


Advanced Riskology

Twice a week Tyler Tervooren writes articles chronicling the many adventures from business building to mountain climbing. From investing to dating. From skydiving to creating effort to relay a sense of risk appreciation.  He says "life’s most important lessons are learned from the risks we take, but we only learn when we actually take them."


Center for Innovative Freedom

Hopefully you know this's Stephan Kinsella's project "dedicated to building public awareness of the manner in which laws and policies impede innovation, creativity, communication, learning, knowledge, emulation, and information sharing."  Basically, it's one of the main places he moved to and why you stopped seeing posts from him at the Mises Blog.  Great updates and info for IP related topics.


Whiskey and Gunpowder

Another one you might know, but probably not.  I only discovered it after finding out it's where Jeff Tucker went when he left the Mises Institute.  It's a subsidiary online presence of Laissez Faire Books, where Tucker is now publisher and excecutive editor.



I haven't spent much time at this one, but it's the brainchild of the author of the book by the same name.  It's a nice collection of short stories, statistics, and studies dealing with the concept of social media and illustrating how it has (and is) shaping our lives.


Krugman in Wonderland

Another one you hopefully know, this is LvMI adjunct scholar Bill Anderson's personal project...Analyzing and criticising America's most prominent public intellectual and champion of Keynesian economics, from an Austrian perspective.



I wouldn't exactly call this a blog so much as a personal public storage.  It's administered by humorist David Thorne, author of The Internet is a Playground.  He only posts a few times a year, but this is some of the funniest stuff you'll ever read.


The Best Page in the Universe

You've probably seen this one at some point.  In the same vein as the site above, you only get a few posts per year, but again, some of the funniest stuff you'll ever read.


Priced in Gold

Exactly what it says.



You've probably seen this one linked around here before.  Robert Wenzel offers an incredibly informative resource on news and events from around the world, combined with a few personal anecdotes and bytes of wisdom from an experienced traveler, all from the perspective of an unapologetic codger with an Austro-libertarian persuasion.  Read what they say about


Political Math

This is the blog of the guy behind the 10000Pennies youtube channel.  He helps visualize political talk with demonstrations using practical examples and a little mathematics.


Free Banking

The collaborative blog of the free-bankers.


The Classic Liberal

I haven't read a lot of this one, but I just found it entertaining the way he randomly throws in pictures of attractive women that have nothing to do with the content of the blog posts.  Like this.  That's not uncommon.  He says libertarians might find it too "conservative"  and conservatives might find it too "libertarian" , but both conservatives and libertarians can find much to offer.  He recommends 6-8 weeks worth of reading to get a feel for the overall theme.


Sovereign Man

International investor, entrepreneur, and permanent traveler Simon Black shares experiences from his life and travels to help you achieve more freedom by offering concise, actionable information each day...all in effort to help you achieve the ends of making money, controling your time, and eliminating the mindset that you are subject to a corrupt government that is bent on degrading your personal liberty.

"A decentralized project supported by a diverse group of individuals united by their shared goal of police accountability. 

We highlight the double standard that some grant to those with badges by pointing to and supporting those harmed. By documenting police actions whether they are illegal, immoral or just a waste of time and resources then putting direct pressure on the individuals responsible (ideally while recording and then later sharing), we can work together to bring about transparency and have a real impact."
