Future imperfect : technology and freedom in an uncertain world by David D Friedman ( Book )
18 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 845 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Future Imperfect describes and discusses a variety of technological revolutions that might happen over the next decades, their implications, and how to deal with them. Topics range from encryption and surveillance through biotechnology and nanotechnology to life extension, mind drugs, virtual reality, and artificial intelligence. One theme of the book is that the future is radically uncertain. Technological changes already begun could lead to more or less privacy than we have ever known; freedom or slavery; effective immortality or the elimination of our species; radical changes in life, marriage, law, medicine, work, and play. We do not know which future will arrive, but it is unlikely to be much like the past. It is worth starting to think about it now."--BOOK JACKET

Harald by David D Friedman ( Book )
3 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Harald: A simple family man, a teller of tales, who happens to be the most powerful general of his people, home of the cataphracts, much feared warriors. Some, like the young king of the neighboring kingdom, James of Kaerlia, might underestimate him because he doesn't bother bedeck himself in the court garb to which he was entitled. No one underestimates Harald twice. A hundred years earlier another young king, dreaming of brave deeds and rich plunder east of the mountains, brought a force from the Kingdom to take the Vales. An army three thousand strong tried to force the pass at Raven Stream. A thousand men of the Vales and their allies the Westkin held them. After three days the King?s men gave up and went home. It wasn't water the ravens drank. Four times in the past twenty years the Empire has invaded Kaerlia?s land, seeking to bring it under their rule. Four times were they sent home with their tails between their legs. Now the Empire is sending its best legions again to the north. Only by a return to the grand alliance of Kingdom, Vales & Ladies of the Order can they hope to withstand the disciplined and blooded invading army. But young James has picked a fight with the Order, picked a fight with Harald himself. Young men are not always wise, nor fond of peace. The new king wants war again. And again, the ravens will drink

The failure of socialism ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Friedman argues that socialism is based on the premise that people are better off when experts guide their lives. He uses U.S. public education as a case study of the failure of socialism. He endorses a voucher system to give choice and control back to parents because giving individuals the power to choose will lead to better results than centrally planned activity. In a discussion following the documentary, Friedman explores the subject further with Gordon Tullock of the University of Arizona and Henry Levin of Stanford University. They debate what standards government should set for education, the role of public and private schools, the special needs of underprivileged children, and how much control parents should have over the schools

Conceptual and statistical issues in contingent valuation : estimating the value of altered visibility in the Grand Canyon ( )
2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This report addresses a number of economic, legal, survey/methodological, and statistical issues as they arose in two contingent valuation studies used to estimate the value of improvements in visibility in the Grand Canyon, where emissions from a coal-fired electric generating plant were believed to contribute to winter haze. Contingent valuation is a method of measuring the economic value of environmental and other public goods. Use and nonuse economic values, willingness to pay for an improvement or to avoid degradation (or willingness to accept compensation instead), property rights, and various conceptual and statistical issues are explored. The report is based on a comment filed with the Environmental Protection Agency's Public Docket and should be of interest to those involved in the regulatory debate and others who measure the economic value of environmental and other public goods

Reforming indigent defense : how free market principles can help to fix a broken system by Stephen J Schulhofer ( Book )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Criminal defense systems are in a state of perpetual crisis, routinely described as 'scandalous.' Public defender offices around the country face crushing caseloads that necessarily compromise the quality of the legal representation they provide. The inadequacy of existing methods for serving the indigent is widely acknowledged, and President Obama has recently taken steps to give the problem a higher priority on the national agenda. Yet virtually every suggestion for reform takes for granted the feature of the current American system that is most problematic and least defensible -- the fact that the indigent defendant is never permitted to select the attorney who will represent him. We see this situation as the source of grave problems. As a corrective, we propose a free market for defense services, one that would, so far as possible, function in the same way that the existing market functions for affluent defendants who are able to retain their own counsel. Though we do not doubt the importance of resource levels, we see budgetary vulnerability and implicit conflicts of interest as inherent in any system where the defendant's attorney is chosen for him by the state. We seek to show that at any level of resources, freedom of choice for the indigent defendant can produce gains for both himself and for the public at large. We also discuss in detail how such a system could be implemented and why it can be expected to provide a practical and effective cure for many of the major ills of indigent defense organization
