The law has an intrinsic nature with the<br>market economy and yet is ignored by its researchers. The libertarian legal theories allow us to fully understand that since its inception, the law is a means of structuring the behaviors of individuals. And the stronger and spontaneous were its institutions, the more the society thrived. Nevertheless, the State significantly weakened the pillars of the law, seizing its foundations and making itself its sole operator, rotting its most vital roots. We must treat the State as a player in the vast market of government. In so doing, it will be responsible for its mistakes because only competition in a huge market can drive a nation to prosperity with the right laws.</p> 2020-04-07T13:26:31+00:00 Copyright (c) In defense of freedom of speech 2020-03-20T15:26:54+00:00 David Marcos <p>Freedom of speech in the 21st century is under threat, not so much by the State (that it is as well) but from civil society. I identify John Stuart Mill as one of those who noticed this issue. I analyze this problem along with two more issues related to this particular problem. The first one is censorship, that comes from the State and from the civil society. The second one is political correctness; I examine this phenomenon and illustrate the concrete case of American universities and the case of James Flynn. Finally, I make some considerations on defamation based on the celebrated professor Walter Block´s ideas.</p> 2020-03-20T15:25:38+00:00 Copyright (c) Faces of Austerity 2020-03-16T10:50:13+00:00 Ludwig Van Den Hauwe <p>Book review of Austerity – When It Works and When It Doesn’t.</p> <p>ALBERTO, Alesina; FAVERO, Carlo; GIAVAZZI, Francesco.
