Dear Libertarian Friend:
Decades ago, when I was young and in college, and just starting my journey into the world of libertarian thought in earnest, I ate most of my meals in the campus cafeteria. Every night after dinner, I’d walk out the front door smack into a crowd of radical students distributing a communist newspaper. I’m not kidding: hammer and sickle and everything. When they tried to talk me into taking a copy, I refused and explained I was a free-marketeer, which invariably started a heated argument.
I have to confess that I didn’t always cover myself with glory when defending free market thinking. You see, I was pretty sure the free market was the best way for society to be arranged. But I didn’t always have the facts, figures, and logical arguments to back it up.
Today, that’s all different.
For instance, at a cocktail party, a leftist and I got into a verbal dust-up when he insisted that socialism was the moral approach to government because it helps the poor, while capitalism helps only the rich. Instead of trying to frame my argument on the fly, I defended the free market with well-thought-out rationales I have acquired through decades of studying and writing about libertarian thought and capitalism.
“In a market economy, producers earn and keep profits, which they use to buy equipment and hire workers, enabling them to produce in much greater quantities at lower cost,” I explained to my leftist opponent.
“People’s real incomes rise, and they become better off, because the economy becomes physically capable of producing in greater and greater abundance at ever lower costs, and the benefit of this greater abundance is lower prices, increasing consumer buying power.”
By the way, this is precisely what happened during the 19th and 20th centuries: People at the end of the last century had to work far less than those at the beginning of the 1900s to earn the necessary purchasing power to buy a wide range of important consumer goods. And this is why the poorest suffer the fewest deprivations in the world’s most market-friendly societies.
With his leftist worldview dismantled in about 120 seconds, my verbal sparring partner left without a comeback and walked off in a huff. That always gives me tremendous satisfaction.
I'm Tom Woods.

is the New York Times bestselling author of 12 books, including The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History, Meltdown (on the financial crisis, featuring a foreword by Ron Paul), 33 Questions About American History You’re Not Supposed to Ask, and Real Dissent: A Libertarian Sets Fire to the Index Card of Allowable Opinion.
I am the best-selling author of 12 books on libertarianism and free-market economics, including The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History. See my bio at left for more details.
I have spent literally tens of thousands of dollars and more than a decade acquiring degrees in history, including a bachelor’s from Harvard and Ph.D. from Columbia, and have dedicated my life to defending free-market thought and teaching it to others.
But I realize most people don’t have the time, funds, or inclination to devote almost a decade of their lives to school and study like I did. And so I found the perfect solution – an online resource that can give you the equivalent of a doctoral degree in libertarian philosophy, politics, and economics in months or even weeks instead of years.
With this new knowledge, you can master the facts and arguments behind the libertarian ideas you hold dear, so you can persuade your critics of the correctness of your position. And you can get this free-market education online, without leaving your home, for just 24 cents a day!

Learn What They Won't Teach You
…Why Murray Rothbard says every government service should be privatized like all other goods and free-market analysis applied across the board.
Ludwig von Mises
…Ludwig von Mises on why recessions aren’t just causeless, spontaneous occurrences and are not the result of so-called “contradictions of capitalism.” They’re caused by tinkering with the free market, and particularly by pushing interest rates lower than the market wants to set them – like they are right now.
…Why Frederic Bastiat believes the market economy is a place of harmony, not struggle or conflict, and that in a free market, people specialize in that area in which they are best able to serve others.

—Barry Goldwater Jr., former Member of Congress
