BaconIsGood4You from NYC

I enjoy that you guys are dipping the toe into libertarianism, but why not do an episode where you jump into the deep end of Anarcho-Capitalism. Murrary Rothbard, David Friedman, etc. I think the idea of questioning the regional, non voluntary, monopolies on rights enforcement that are governments very interesting, and think it might be a provocative subject.

I'd be really curious to see how these ideas could be presented and explored in a pop-econ manner.

Great work on this episode!

About Freakonomics Radio

In their books Freakonomics and SuperFreakonomicsSteven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner use the tools of economics to explore real-world behavior. As boring as that may sound, what they really do is tell stories — about cheating schoolteachers, self-dealing real-estate agents, and crack-selling mama’s boys. American Public Media’s Marketplace and WNYC are now bringing those Freakonomics stories — and plenty of new ones — to the radio, with Dubner as host. Just like the books, Freakonomics Radio will explore “the hidden side of everything.” It will tell you things you always thought you knew but didn’t, and things you never thought you wanted to know, but do.
