The aim of this article is to revisit <em>Buffy’s</em> Season 4 and analyze it through a libertarian perspective. Over this season, a great number of relevant subjects are discussed, such as the form and function of the state, its relationship with society, the subversion of public authorities and the morality of law and punishment. It is expected that the successful adoption of libertarian ethics and principles to understand this TV show might bring out Libertarianism as a valuable philosophical alternative to be taken into account when looking for solutions to current issues.</p> Marcella Lins Copyright (c) https://misesjournal.org.br/misesjournal/article/view/1317 Tue, 13 Oct 2020 17:14:38 -0300 Competição, monopólio e antitruste: https://misesjournal.org.br/misesjournal/article/view/1327 <p>Resenha do Liro:</p> <p>MACHOVEC, FRANK.

A. Hayek’s Thinking https://misesjournal.org.br/misesjournal/article/view/1308 <p>In the 1960s and 1970s, F. A. Hayek showed through his writings some concern about the emptying of the foundations of the rule of law doctrine. It was crucial to recover and preserve the foundations of this doctrine<br>in order to guarantee the freedom of individuals before their peers and the State. It seems that, today, free societies go through a similar process of questioning and relativizing the the rule of law doctrine. The fundamentals of the rule of law defended by Hayek encompass individual and negative freedom, social evolutionism, and the empire of the applicable law in an impartial way. This article aims to study the fundamentals of the rule of law doctrine in F. A. Hayek. In an open society, a state of freedom can be enjoyed by everyone to use their knowledge for their own purposes, limited by universally applied general rules. The State must be limited by general principles to which the community has previously and constitutionally committed. Without the foundations of the rule of law, as Hayek taught, the administrative discretion of the State, the servitude of the will, and the constructivist rationalism of the norms rise.</p> Anderson Paz Copyright (c) https://misesjournal.org.br/misesjournal/article/view/1308 Sat, 15 Aug 2020 09:15:44 -0300 Cryptocurrencies and the Contractual Freedom in International Private Law and in the Brazilian Legal System https://misesjournal.org.br/misesjournal/article/view/1325 <p>&nbsp;This article deals with the use of cryptocurrencies and their respective technological structure within the international community and in Brazil. It is known that law is a dynamic social science, insofar as it must adapt to realities. Today it is impossible to ignore the growing transactions of equity content that take place<br>through virtual currency, which differs from electronic currency. Adopting the liberal theoretical framework,<br>the legitimacy and viability of cryptocurrencies will be demonstrated as a bargaining chip, focusing the study<br>on the core of international and national contracts, verifying the support (or not) of domestic private law, and<br>how they may prove to be solutions to major problems, despite the progressive eagerness of States to regulate them in order to avoid decreases in their revenue. Methodologically, the literature review is used, as well as the analysis of regulations, jurisprudence and media reports.</p> Tamara Luiza Dall Agnol Pinto Copyright (c) https://misesjournal.org.br/misesjournal/article/view/1325 Sat, 15 Aug 2020 09:01:06 -0300 Ideas, institutional change, crisis and pandemics https://misesjournal.org.br/misesjournal/article/view/1316 <p>The recent crisis yielded by the Covid-19 pandemic has brought up many immediate concerns, as well as uncertainty regarding the social effects it may have in the future. Will there be institutional change in our societies? In what direction: towards a greater degree of freedom or further advancement of the role of the<br>State? In this article, we will seek to analyze how this institutional change is devised, focusing our attention<br>on the role played by the mainstream ideas and values in society, and how they evolve. Particularly, we will<br>consider the role of ideas using a market as a benchmark, in which we find parties who demand and who<br>offer, highlighting the role played by entrepreneurs. We will also see what happens when a crisis is triggered,<br>and to what extent it impacts both the size of the market and the future path that society may follow. It is too<br>early to say, right now, which way the market of ideas will lean after the pandemic, but we will analyze what<br>may be the impact of the crisis, of the possible solutions, their results, and their effect on the prevailing ideas.</p> Martin Krause Copyright (c) https://misesjournal.org.br/misesjournal/article/view/1316 Tue, 28 Jul 2020 21:09:21 -0300
