  • How to homestead a national park...

    No fuckin clue.. My brain + Rothbard = How do you mix labor with a bunch of land that you, essentially, do not want to mix labor with, but conserve the current state of.

  • Mass murderer targets family-less, friend-less, homeless people. What can be done?

    I am struggling with Rothbard's idea of justice in as much as he seems to require the presence of the injured party.

    [quote] Was the famous internet tech bubble caused directly by government/central banking?[/quote] Yes. The question is which way it caused it.

  • Re: Deflation

    Deflation has exactly the same harmful, economy-distorting effects inflation does, except in reverse. Every single reason you could cite for inflation being bad has a matching reason why deflation is. (a) For example, inflation does not happen evenly. You don't simply get paid more exactly the same...

  • What did Mises think of Man, Economy and State?

    Does anyone know what Mises thought of Rothbard's Man, Economy and State? In particular about Rothbard's views on monopoly, which are opposed to Mises'? Thanks

  • Rothbard on the 18thAmendment and the Progressive Movement

    Hello. I remember either reading or hearing Murray Rothbard state that one benefit of the early Progressive Movement is that it sought changes to the U.S. Constitution legitimately through constitutional amendment, as opposed to Congress simply enlarging the powers of the federal government on its own...
