Jeffrey Tucker, author of the great Bourbon for Breakfast: Living Outside the Statist Quo, has a brand new book out, and it’s also fantastic: It’s a Jetsons World: Private Miracles and Public Crimes. Of particular interest here is the section “Can Ideas Be Owned?,” containing five great chapters on intellectual property matters:
- Our Miracle of Pentecost
- The Socialism of Agri-Patents
- Why Religious People Struggle with Economics
- Ideas, Free and Unfree
- A Movie That Gets It Right
The fourth one is a favorite of mine, and appeared previously as “Ideas, Free and Unfree: A Book Commentary” (commentaries on Boldrin and Levine’s Against Intellectual Monopoly). I highly recommend this book.
