Note: An updated and revised version of this article appears as chap. 18 of Legal Foundations of a Free Society (Houston, Texas: Papinian Press, 2023).
Jeff Tucker and I published “Goods, Scarce and Nonscarce” on Mises Daily today. This article examines the nature of nonscarce goods and their relationship to scarce goods and other fundamental economic concepts. This of course ties into the intellectual property discussion ongoing in libertarian and free market circles.
