Subject: Debate with Milton Friedman on Road to Serfdom

Dear Prof. Block,

I am a Bronze Sustaining Member of Mises Institute. I hope you are doing well during these difficult times. I have a request and a question:

– Would you be so kind to send me the link to your exchange with Milton Friedman on Hayek’s Road to Serfdom?

I would very much appreciate your help, but of course this is not urgent in any conceivable way.

Yours in Liberty,

Jorge Borlandelli

– Where can I find a debate on Hoppe’s position that only libertarian ethics can be defended by argumentation. What is your position on this subject?

From Stephan Kinsella:

Hoppe’s “argumentation ethic” defense of libertarian rights was first published, to my knowledge, in three articles in 1988: “On the Ultimate Justification of the Ethics of Private Property,” Liberty (September 1988); “The Justice of Economic Efficiency,” Austrian Economics Newsletter (Winter 1988); and a longer piece, “From the Economics of Laissez Faire to the Ethics of Libertarianism,” in: Walter E. Block  & Llewellyn H. Rockwell, eds., Man, Economy, and Liberty: Essays in Honor of Murray N. Rothbard (Mises Institute, 1988). These were included as chapters 10, 9, and 8, respectively, of Hoppe’s book The Economics and Ethics of Private Property (Kluwer, 1993). The most definitive elaboration of Hoppe’s theory is found in “The Ethical Justification of Capitalism and Why Socialism Is Morally Indefensible,” chapter 7 of his monumental A Theory of Socialism and Capitalism (Kluwer 1989; more info; hereinafter referred to as TSC ). This chapter is similar to the 1988 chapter in Man, Economy, and Liberty. These and other materials are available at Hoppe’s website.
