I’m being serious, I think Tom and I make this sound pretty plausible. So if you’re a free-market-loving minarchist, tell me what you think we’re missing.
Remember everybody, Tom Woods is going to be at the Night of Clarity on August 15! If you jump for joy when it’s another of his shows where I’m the guest, I really can’t understand why you wouldn’t make plans to see us both in hopping downtown Nashville. Full details here.
One funny thing I realized while listening to the playback: I think that insurance companies would play a big role in a modern, industrialized society based on voluntary relations. This naturally leads some critics to worry, “Wouldn’t the insurance companies turn into the State in your world?” I have come up with responses to that, but I noticed that in Tom’s discussion at one point, he throws out three examples of real-world insurance companies. Their names? Allstate, State Farm, and Progressive. Uh oh.
