Manual agorista

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

Meh. All hat and no cattle. Or very little cattle? I’m all for criticizing and undermining Statism, and certainly counter-economics is a good thing, but there’s a whole lot of stones left unturned. More needs to be developed and Konkin would have done better had he given actual practical tactics.
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. I'm not particularly convinced by his idea of agorism, however; Rothbard was right that the black market in cou ...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. ...more

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.

Like some other reviewers, I was kind of disappointed with the vagueness of this primer. I was hoping for a specific outlay of counter economic strategies and advice but instead got oversimplified overviews of Austrian economics, libertarianism, revisionism, and to a startlingly limited extent, counter economics. That being said, this does serve as a neat little introduction to several lines of thought in the liberty movement and I appreciate its clearness and brevity. To my knowledge, Konkin wa ...more

Disappointing book. I was hoping for more content on actual Agorist tactics and practices. Instead, 90% of the book basically consists in an ideological exposition of Austrian Economics, ignorant and demagogic comments on everything that may have connections with the State or banking or economists, half-baked revisionist history and some typical internal battles against other libertarian strands. After reading this, and given Konkin's popularity (although of course he is not the only libertarian ...more
Mi problema con este libro es la traducción del título, esto no es un "Manual Agorista" es una recopilación de ideas agoristas, en cuanto a ideas prácticas, el contenido es pobre, pero se entiende que el autor no se quisiera ver implicado en apologías a delitos que lo puedan meter en problemas.

Como "Manual Agorista" le doy 1 estrella, pésimo, malo, malísimo!

Como una "Libreta Agorista" (Que su traducción más exacta) pues... tampoco dice nada novedoso, ni profundizado, pero le daría 4 estrellas po

Good intro into what agorism is. Can't wait to read Konkin's 'New Libertarian Manifesto' next. ...more

This is a really good book for people whose thinking is prepared for it. Without that preparation, it may be a little bit less useful. By "preparation", I mean exposure to some ideas that fill in the gaps.

It might not be quite rigorous and detailed enough to convince the natural logicians among us, without that preparation.

It might not be quite emotionally moving and viscerally inspiring enough to convince the firebrands among us, without that preparation.

It is definitely not pragmatic enough to
