The Machinery Of Freedom

The Machinery of Freedom by David Friedman is the most fundamental exposition of the doctrine of anarcho-capitalism from an economic rather than an ethical or legal standpoint.

I would be glad if you leave a review, recommend the book to others and, of course, you can always leave a donation.

This is the third edition of The Machinery Of Freedom by David Friedman, which I have translated into Russian. You can read it online or download it in PDF.

Each chapter is also accompanied by audio. The text is read by David Friedman himself. For your convenience, the entire audiobook is collected in one playlist.

Text provided by the author. The audio was legally received on Amazon and then illegally converted to mp3 format.
