The Moral and Economic Case for Free Markets. Art Carden and Keith Knight

by | Mar 21, 2021

“… there are two and only two ways of attaining wealth in society: (a) by production and voluntary exchange with others — the method of the free market; and (b) by violent expropriation of the wealth produced by others. The latter is the method of violence and theft. The former benefits all parties involved; the latter parasitically benefits the looting group or class at the expense of the looted.”

 

Murray N. Rothbard 

Ethics of Liberty, pp. 166–67

Art Carden is a professor of economics at the Brock School of Business at Samford University.
