Schools of Thought in Classical Liberalism, Part 6: Anarcho‐Capitalism
Do we even need a government? Some anarchist philosophers and economists don’t think so. Dr. Nigel Ashford takes a look at two anarcho‐capitalist thinkers, Murray Rothbard and David Friedman. Rothbard criticizes the state for its use of coercion, and Friedman criticizes it for its inefficiency. Both argue that there are free‐market alternatives to all government services.
