  • Re: Hitler is Schooled By a Real Austrian Economist!

    Great work. They've now got pop-up ads that cover the subtitles so you have to kill the ad to read it. It would also be easier to read if the subtitles had a dark background..

If they do not, it is the British government's legal duty to declare war on Iceland and recoup the assets of debtors and distribute them to their creditors. Oh Really?

  • Re: Binding Arbitration?

    Thanks for the reply. I suppose in these programming contracts there must be some automatic renewal clause. In that case they are not really negotiating over a new contract per se, but negotiating some particular details of the extension or renewal or the ability to cancel the contract. I'm no lawyer so I don't know if this makes sense, but

  • Re: Rothbard's "Ethics of Liberty"

    Yes, a great book. Another one is For A New Liberty by Rothbard. In it he covers this topic with some additional detail.

  • Zakaria: We owe all innovation to the DOD spending...

    Fareed Zakaria, GPS Podcast, 10-31-10 : "The semiconductor industry, for example would not exist, if not for the D.O.D.... The Internet, well Al Gore didn't invent it, but DARPA did. The computer industry, for years NASA was it's main client and kept it alive and growing.... GPS, that's powering the next wave of innovation on the web

  • Re: What Did Rothbard Have Against the Anabaptists?

    Yes, I wondered the same thing when I recently listened to the audiobook. I note that Rothbard also makes plenty of false generalizations about Calvinists and Presbyterians too.
