David Friedman

David Friedman discusses how private sources can produce more efficient laws than governments, making the case for anarcho-capitalism over government monopoly over law.

This talk will attempt to define government with a brief sketch of the evidence on whether and under what circumstances an anarchy, a society without a government, is workable. He will also provide a theoretical discussion intended to help make sense of the evidence, including a discussion of possible reasons for the nonexistence of an anarchy and concluding with a discussion with showing some circumstances and in what form stateless societies might come to exist over the next century or so.
