• Unit 8: Security and Defense

    In unit 8 you are challenged to think about security and defense in terms of spontaneous emergent order. Can they emerge in a market? Why and why not? We focus on the work of Hans-Hermann Hoppe and discuss the Hobbesian myth and the positive case for security as a private good. We question whether governments should have a monopoly on security and defense and explore other possible alternatives to this question.

    Completing this unit should take you approximately 2 hours.
