Join us for a few autumn evenings as we discuss The Invisible Hook: The Hidden Economics of Pirates by Peter T. Leeson.
“The Invisible Hook, is a rollicking good read—more fun than any person should be allowed to have without a parrot, a hook, and an eye patch. Leeson’s goal, however, is more than merely collecting entertaining pirate anecdotes…Leeson’s book is magnificent. It also carries an important implication: If rogue pirates could organize themselves into relatively peaceful societies, then perhaps modern people should look less to coercive State solutions and more toward emergent order arising from voluntary human interactions.” – E. Frank Stephenson, Foundation for Economic Education.
