Combat Shooter's HandbookA federal district court in Michigan ruled earlier this month that police can stop people who they consider suspicious for exercising their constitutional right to open-carry firearms.

On March 3, 2013 police in Grand Rapids, Michigan Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps Institutestopped Johann Deffert without probable cause after receiving a 911 call about a suspicious individual. The caller considered Deffert suspicious because of his openly visible holstered firearm and because he was wearing camouflage.

The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other Misfits“Although Deffert remained cooperative and respectful, (officer) Moe appeared to be taken aback when the man attempted to school him on the legalities of open carry in the state,” the Ghostgen website explains. “Almost immediately, Moe detained Deffert while the officer ensured he had no mental or criminal background that would prohibit him from legally carrying a gun. By this time, a second officer, Timothy Johnston, had arrived on the scene.”

Environmental and Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian View

BookCoverImageMurray 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.

The bureaucrat simply does not have the same motives as does the owner of a capital interest in the property. Our specialty is the working livestock ranch simply because there are so many very good reasons for owning such a property. We provide educational, management and consulting services with a focus on ecologically and financially sustainable land management that will enhance natural processes (water and mineral cycles, energy flow and community dynamics) while enhancing profits and steadily building wealth.
