Announcing Libertarian Papers: A New Journal

From the LRC blog, posted by Stephan Kinsella:

The Mises Institute is proud to announce the launch of a new, online journal today: Libertarian Papers. Edited by yours truly and boasting a impressive and geographically- and academically diverse Editorial Board, Libertarian Papers is publishing its first seven articles today, one per hour starting at 8:00 a.m. CST. These include articles by two eminent libertarian thinkers, Jan Narveson (writing on Nozick, justice, and restitution) and Robert Higgs (on depressions and war). These are followed by two, count 'em, two, previously unpublished memos from ... Ludwig von Mises and Murray Rothbard. Mises's is a memo dated New Year's Eve, 1946, to F.A. Hayek, relaying his concerns and advice about the then-nascent Mont Pèlerin Society. Rothbard's is a 1961 "confidential" memo the Volker Fund, about libertarian tactics and strategy. Provocative, fascinating stuff.

The last three articles to be published today are a fascinating three-part exchange between Nicolás Maloberti and Joshua Katz about libertarianism, positive rights, and "Possibility of the Legitimate State."
