Nesta monografia acadêmica e radical, Rothbard identifica os pontos cruciais do sistema educacional que o condenaram ao fracasso: em cada um de seus níveis, do financiamento ao comparecimento, o sistema se baseia na compulsão e não no consentimento voluntário.
E isso acarreta em algumas consequências. O currículo é politizado para refletir as prioridades ideológicas do regime no poder. Ocorre um contínuo rebaixamento dos padrões para se adaptarem ao menor denominador comum. Não se permite que as crianças mais inteligentes desenvolvam seus potenciais, as necessidades especiais de determinadas crianças são negligenciadas, e os alunos médios são reduzidos a engrenagens anônimas de uma máquina.
Conforme Kevin Ryan, da Universidade de Boston, indica na introdução, se a reforma educacional algum dia conseguir provocar mudanças fundamentais, ela terá que começar com um repensar completo do ensino público como o que Rothbard nos oferece aqui.
Market Frictions: Trade and Urbanization at the Vietnam-China Border (Max Planck Studies in Anthropology and Economy Book 5) (English Edition) seleção on-line livro

Based on ethnographic research conducted during several years, Market Frictions examines the tensions and frictions that emerge from the interaction of global market forces, urban planning policies, and small-scale trading activities in the Vietnamese border city of Lào Cai. Here, it is revealed how small-scale traders and market vendors experience the marketplace, reflect upon their trading activities, and negotiate current state policies and regulations. It shows how “traditional” Vietnamese marketplaces have continually been reshaped and adapted to meet the changing political-economic circumstances and civilizational ideals of the time.
Songs of Profit, Songs of Loss: Private Equity, Wealth, and Inequality (Anthropology of Contemporary North America) (English Edition) seleção on-line livro

In addition to providing invaluable ethnographic insight, Songs of Profit, Songs of Loss is also an anthropological study of inequality as Souleles connects the core components of financial capitalism to economic disparities. Souleles uses local ideas of “value” and “time” to frame the ways private equity investors comprehend their work and to show how they justify the prosperity and poverty they create. Throughout, Souleles argues that understanding private equity investors as contrasted with others in society writ large is essential to fully understanding private equity within the larger context of capitalism in the United States.

An against-the-grain polemic on American capitalism from New York Times bestselling author Tyler Cowen.
We love to hate the 800-pound gorilla. Walmart and Amazon destroy communities and small businesses. Facebook turns us into addicts while putting our personal data at risk. From skeptical politicians like Bernie Sanders who, at a 2016 presidential campaign rally said, “If a bank is too big to fail, it is too big to exist,” to millennials, only 42 percent of whom support capitalism, belief in big business is at an all-time low. But are big companies inherently evil? If business is so bad, why does it remain so integral to the basic functioning of America? Economist and bestselling author Tyler Cowen says our biggest problem is that we don’t love business enough.
In Big Business, Cowen puts forth an impassioned defense of corporations and their essential role in a balanced, productive, and progressive society. He dismantles common misconceptions and untangles conflicting intuitions. According to a 2016 Gallup survey, only 12 percent of Americans trust big business “quite a lot,” and only 6 percent trust it “a great deal.” Yet Americans as a group are remarkably willing to trust businesses, whether in the form of buying a new phone on the day of its release or simply showing up to work in the expectation they will be paid. Cowen illuminates the crucial role businesses play in spurring innovation, rewarding talent and hard work, and creating the bounty on which we’ve all come to depend.
