  • Does Rothbard Support Positive Rights/Collective Ownership of Waterways?

    I was reading "Who Owns Water" by Murray Rothbard as a part of Robert Wenzel's 30 day reading list ( ) and found Rothbard's anaysis quite peculiar. He writes: "Where there are underground rivers, the first appropriator can own his portion...

  • Corporate lawyers will beat the average guy in lawsuit

    Hey everybody. I was in a discussion with somebody about property rights and the environment. I said that a system of enforced property rights would protect people from abuses. For example, if you own part of a river and Dow Chemical dumps chemicals into the river and pollutes your part of the waterway...

  • Re: Capitalism = Destruction?

    I got here rather late. I had been reading this thread from November 30th! I see it is still alive however here on December 18th, so here's my question. I've thought about this whole "environment" question many times. I take as my 1st example the Grand Canyon in the USA. When it was...

  • Property rights and pollution.

    I consider myself to be a fairly staunch Libertarian. I believe that the government should be limited to protecting life, liberty, and property (natural rights) from being harmed by others. I also think that much environmental law could simply be handled with tort law (for damage to property) or criminal...

  • Re: Environmentalists in attack mode

    "Nadjeschda, I am a libertarian and an environmentalist" Great, I knew they must hang up somewhere! Yes I have a critic to a particular Mises publication; it was one of the audio courses. There was an example with an old lady having her laundry stained by soot from a nearby chimney. Instead...

  • Environmentalists in attack mode

    I don’t think that the Mises-publications on environmentalism can withstand expert attacks. I now give you the *unique* opportunity to train fending of environmentalists by fending of me (I am a rather mediocre environmentalist so this is a good starting point). Imagine the following problem: Someone...

  • Are resources limited?

    This is a true question; I have not made my mind up about this. To keep things simple I first limit the question to resources which can be mined. As I understand the common error of Greens and the "Club of Rome" is to mix up resources and reserves. While resources are defined as what is accessible...
