Hey David,

Have you given the "A World of Strong Privacy: Anarcho-Capitalism Online" talk before? If so, has it been previously recorded? If not, will you be recording it for distribution later? Sounds like an interesting follow-up to Future Imperfect!

David Friedman said...

I have probably given some version of that before, but I don't think there is a webbed recording. It's ultimately based on an old article, which is on my web page.

David Friedman said...

The talk was recorded and I believe will be webbed.

Thanks for the follow-up, David! Hope it went well.

Dear Dr. Friedman, I just re-sent an email I sent you earlier - with invitation to insert Bratislava, Slovakia, into your European tour. Looking forward to hearing from you, Richard Durana

David Friedman said...


Thanks for the invitation, but at this point the schedule is fixed. Maybe next time.
