https://youtu.be/8jK-rT-0SCk Defenders of free enterprise do not believe in a perfect administration under a market economy. Rather, we do not believe in the possibility of such. To the extent imperfect decision-making is accepted, we then seek to solve for who has the best chance of answering the question correctly, he with local knowledge or he without? He who will reap the consequences of his decision, or he who will not? David L. Bahnsen, There’s No Free Lunch: 250 Economic Truths David L.

Hearing the Other Side: Libertarian Interviews Progressive (Bob Fenster & Keith Knight)

hearing the other side

https://youtu.be/ehul8IB1E_8 Defenders of free enterprise do not believe in a perfect administration under a market economy. Rather, we do not believe in the possibility of such. To the extent imperfect decision-making is accepted, we then seek to solve for who has the best chance of answering the question correctly, he with local knowledge or he without? He who will reap the consequences of his decision, or he who will not? Better decisions that are imperfect are superior to worse ones that are also imperfect. And accountability where a decision is made is better than no accountability...

I Attended a Marxist University and Became a Capitalist! (w/ Brad Polumbo)

https://youtu.be/NWssd_IuklE To the extent that the years between the end of World War II and today are a story of competing economic visions, the short version is this: Karl Marx was wrong, and Milton Friedman was right. Market-oriented reforms over the past several decades have cut severe poverty around the world by more than half. As late as 1980, more than 40% of the world’s population lived in severe poverty, according to World Bank figures. Now, that share is less than 10%. There is simply nothing else in the history of the material affairs of the world that can compare to that. -...

Welcome to Grokfest, New Hampshire’s New Liberty Festival

img 20220506 133746

Since the Free State Project began working to move liberty-minded individuals to the small New England state of New Hampshire, the sheer volume of libertarians and libertarian-adjacent people in the state has ballooned. What was once a small group of dedicated liberty activists has grown to leave a massive mark on the politics and culture of the mostly-rural Granite state, but the goal of “Liberty in our Lifetime” stays the consistent focal point for what could be described as a homeland for liberty. With more movers than ever before, the yearly liberty festival Porcfest has grown...

The Government’s COVID-19 response was met with the obvious effects like the lockdowns that decimated the lives of millions to little to no effect on mitigating the spread, mask mandates, or even vaccination mandates. But underlying all of the obvious issues was that of economic destruction being laid down before the American people in the form of the Federal Reserve’s response to the economic collapse caused by lockdowns. The Federal Reserve has laid down a suicide path for the United States’ economy. The money supply is created in part by the private banks making loans and the Federal...

https://youtu.be/-W_jY1iaW4I ... it is hardly “charity” to take wealth by force and hand it over to someone else. Indeed, this is the direct opposite of charity, which can only be an unbought, voluntary act of grace. Compulsory confiscation can only deaden charitable desires completely, as the wealthier grumble that there is no point in giving to charity when the State has already taken on the task. Murray N. Rothbard, Ph.D., Man, Economy, and State with Power and Market, p. 1319 Kennedy Edwards is the co-host of The State of Ohio podcast and Libertarian Party of Ohio, Trumbull County...
