The Free Market Model versus Government: A Reply to Nozick

The Journal of Libertarian Studies

Two objection have recently been made to the model of the free market without government. These objections suggest that the model may be self-defeating, in at least two different ways. The problems about to be discussed have been raised by Robert Nozick in his recent Anarchy, State, and Utopia, and have been used by him to argue against the model, and on behalf of what he calls the "minimal state".
