El agorismo es, en palabras de su fundador, la única esperanza de vida libre dentro de ciertos límites. Samuel Konkin (1947-2004), un tipo que abandonó su tesis doctoral en Nueva York para dedicarse a la contraeconomía y a la propagación de las ideas libertarias, expone con insuperable concisión en esta obra el corazón de su ideal agorista, que pasa por rescatar el potenci ...more

This is actually a very good primer on anarchocapitalism in general. SEK3 derives all the important economic and ethical ideas, then talks about how to implement them in daily life, all with a clever, elegant writing style. I particularly like how he derives the action-axiom, and thus the foundation of praxeology, and his critique of activism without theory and theory without activism.

Al terminar de leer esta obra me pareció que esto pudo haber sido una versión mejorada del Manifiesto Neolibertario, está mucho mejor organizado y expone el argumento del Agorismo haciendo una síntesis de lo que es la economía a través de la historia, las influencias de la escuela Austríaca y la síntesis Rothbardiana del Anarcocapitalismo, esta es una de las obras que recomendaría para una iniciación en las ideas libertarias y agoristas.

Konkin is a rather important writer for the libertarian cause, not only because he has deep insights into economic theory, history, and philosophy, but also because he can manage to express them concisely in writing. This conciseness is what makes An Agorist Primer such a wonderful booklet to read, and I think it would be especially useful for those foreign to the philosophy of libertarianism and agorism. Though I was already well aware of many of the topics discussed, I could appreciate Konkin' ...more

I'm fed up with politics and agorist counter-economics seems like a realistic alternative at this point in my life. This is an excellent primer, outlining the ideas of agorism in a general way while pointing to further agorism resources at the end. I doubt it will be convincing to most statists or political libertarians, but this seems to me to be the sort of philosophy that is better caught than taught since its significance is more practical than theoretical.
