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

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.
