Ye Olde Grabbing Hande

Over at The Freeman, Sheldon Richman takes on state intervention in voluntary exchange.

I think it's fair to say that it's possible that euvoluntary exchange can occur even in the presence of state intervention, but it's by no means guaranteed.

  1. Show me any single transaction that doesn't take place in an environment constrained by violence. That's just not a useful distinction, to me. Last I checked, enforcement of contracts is a requirement for functioning property rights, and conventional ownership.


Do you have suggestions on where we could find more examples of this phenomenon?
