Review: The Machinery of Freedom: Guide to a Radical Capitalism

The Machinery of Freedom: Guide to a Radical Capitalism
The Machinery of Freedom: Guide to a Radical Capitalism by David D. Friedman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A rather interesting work in defense of free market anarchism; I liked Friedman’s pragmatic, down-to-earth approach for explaining how such a society would work for the benefit of everyone, and how we could actually peacefully transition from the current system to such a society. However, I found the book rather fragmented, with many issues covered a bit too superficially. That is understandable, because each of these issues merits its own book, and it’s not possible for a single author to cover everything with the required depth. However, it is possible to steer the reader’s attention towards these matters and provoke further thought, and I think Friedman does that very successfully.
