Science, Technology, and Government
In this book, Rothbard, who typically just tells the government to go kill themselves, I think makes a mistake by trying to be gracious and offer the government a way in which it can cooperate with the free market. One quick example of where I think he's ultimately wrong is the case where he says that government should never be in the production of military goods but rather the government should contract with private entities who can produce goods for the government. Although this might be better than the alternative (i.e., the government producing the goods on their own), it, at least in my mind, still leaves in place the issue of the government changing the incentive structure of the market by incentivizing the adherence of government decrees rather than serving the consumer.
