Kinsella on Liberty Podcast: Episode 020.
This is lecture 3 (of 6) of my 2011 Mises Academy course “Libertarian Legal Theory: Property, Conflict, and Society.” I’ll release the remaining lectures here in the podcast in upcoming days.
This lecture’s topic is “Applications I: Legal Systems, Contract, Fraud,” and discusses:
- Legislation and Law
- The significance of Roman Law
- Contract Theory
- “written” agreements
- Breach of contract
- Debtor’s Prison
For slides for all six lectures, plus extensive hyperlinked suggested reading material, see this Libertarian Standard post. For a listing of the syllabus and topics covered in each lecture, see this Mises blog post.
