Law & Order but not a State, so says Rothbard

As I have done in the past, my goal is that the following are excerpts inspire you to read "WHAT HAS THE GOVERNMENT DONE TO OUR MONEY" by Murray Rothbard.  If able, join us on the 31st of March when we discuss this book at the Personal Economics Group office in Dallas. Rothbard argued convincingly that a free society needs law and order, but not a state. Police and court services can and should be private, provided by associations and companies operating in the market economy on the basis of contract. (p.12) Money originate neither from the social compact nor government edict, but as a market solution of the problems and costs associated with barter….Government intervention does not protect money at all but rather threatens its integrity.  Government interference leads to more abuse and more instability that the free market would otherwise have tolerated. Instead of solving problems, intervention creates them. Instead of order they bring chaos and economic upheaval. (p.15) Sound money, Rothbard shows, means that enforcement of strict separation between the state and money. (p.17)
