Due to updated information, I think I might have been conned.
While we were there, the Medical Center Hospital’s computer system went down.
SOP when the Dr comes in: We pull up the Ct pics and discuss them. We didn’t do that this time because of the tech problem. All the Dr said was (very vague and I can’t remember exactly but it was something like) we are making some progress but still have a long way to go. You need to wear your brace for another 6 weeks.” The End. Two plus two equals doubt that he even saw the Ct pics.
Later, as we usually do, we requested a disk from radiology to send my nephew (PA working in neuro-surgery) for a second opinion. With the disk, came a written report by the radiologist that read the Ct pics. There is no way to read that report any way other than “there has been no change since December.”
The disk and report are currently in the mail to the nephew. We’ll see what he has to say??

Murray N. Rothbard was the father of what some call Radical Libertarianism or Anarcho-Capitalism which Hans-Hermann Hoppe described as “Rothbard’s unique contribution to the rediscovery of property and property rights as the common foundation of both economics and political philosophy, and the systematic reconstruction and conceptual integration of modern, marginalist economics and natural-law political philosophy into a unified moral science: libertarianism.”
This book applies the principles of this “unified moral science” to environmental and natural resource management issues.
The book started out life as an assigned reading list for a university level course entitled Environmental and Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian View.
As I began to prepare to teach the course, I quickly saw that there was a plethora of textbooks suitable for universal level courses dealing with environmental and natural resource economics. The only problem was that they were all based in mainstream neo-classical (or Keynesian) theory. I could find no single collection of material comprising a comprehensive treatment of environmental and natural resource economics based on Austrian Economic Theory.
However, I was able to find a large number of essays, monographs, papers delivered at professional meetings and published from a multitude of sources. This book is the result. It is composed of a collection of research reports and essays by reputable scientists, economists, and legal experts as well as private property and free market activists.
The book is organized into seven parts: I. Environmentalism: The New State Religion; II. The New State Religion Debunked; III. Introduction to Environmental and Natural Resource Economics; IV. Interventionism: Law and Regulation; V. Pollution and Recycling; VI. Property Rights: Planning, Zoning and Eminent Domain; and VII. Free Market Conservation. It also includes an elaborate Bibliography, References and Recommended Reading section including an extensive Annotated Bibliography of related and works on the subject.
The intellectual level of the individual works ranges from quite scholarly to informed editorial opinion.
