EconLog Book Club Round-up: Ask Me Any Question About For a New Liberty
By Bryan Caplan
We’ve finished the chapter-by-chapter of Murray Rothbard’s For a New Liberty. Now I’d like to wrap things up by answering most or all of your questions about the book. Please limit yourself to questions, not statements, phrase them succinctly, and avoid compound questions.
I’ll do separate posts on my favorite questions, and try to answer the others directly in the comments. If there’s overlap, I may just answer one version, and leave the rest to your imagination.
P.S. For your convenience, I’m putting links to the whole prior discussion below the fold.
