Anders Sandberg on abortion and prenatal sex selection in a liberal society. I endorse this message.
Paul Walker on the problems arising from mixed ownership. Conflicting objectives suck.
New Zealand government set to force bakers to add folic acid to all bread. A legacy from the previous paternalist government which will hopefully be reversed by the current populist government.
The stronger the drug laws, the stronger the drugs. A straightforward consequence of the Alchian-Allen theorem.
Ten greatest libertarian science fiction stories. I’m suprised not to see any Vernor Vinge on the list. See especially his short story The Ungoverned. Joe Schembrie says pretty much all sci-fi is libertarian.
Bloggingheads.tv: Frans de Waal and Jeffrey Schloss on Primatology. I think social scientists need to take primatology far more seriously than they have thus far. De Waal’s Our Inner Ape is one of my favourite pop-science books.
