Follow up to a Libertarian future

Reader Jazzbumpa suggests taking a look at Yves Smith’s Journey into a Libertarian Future series as part of Mike’s thought experiment on the subject here. A very good read.

He also offers one of his own posts on the matter at Retirement Blues
Brute economics of slavery.

And opines at the end of his e-mail “It really makes me think about the 13th century”.

In comments at Mike’s post is an interesting discussion in real terms using the development of the electricity industry as an example of interaction of government and private enterprise.
