Externalities: Is Carrying Germs an Act of Aggression? With Don Boudreaux


What Then Must We Do?

Bretigne Shaffer Podcast

Don Boudreaux is the perfect person to address the "you don't have a right to infect others" argument. Don is a professor of economics (among many other accomplishments), and he also has a law degree. So he has quite a lot to say about the nature of "externalities", both from an economic perspective and one grounded in law, and in common-law principles in particular.

We also address the question of whether the perpetrators of the devastating lockdowns and other restrictions should be held accountable for the harm they have done via something similar to the Nuremberg trials.

And in the end, I think I even manage to cheer him up a little regarding humanity's prospects for the future.

Don writes about externalities here.

…and you can find more of his writings here, or on Cafe Hayek where he blogs regularly.

Some of the LA fireworks videos we talk about are posted here.
