Ebola, Markets, and Borders

Here are a couple of pieces on ‘libertarians for ebola’.

Thomas Knapp at C4SS, on the paper-shuffling of bureaucrats and the incentives of entrepreneurs.

Robert Murphy at LibertyChat, making a very clever point about “open” vs “private” borders.

Jeffrey Tucker makes some excellent and thoroughly reasonable points, too. (eg, “When people are afraid, they have this irrational penchant for reaching out to government to save them. Never mind that the power might be abused or might not even be a necessary, much less suitable, power. Government is magic: if something is big, important, or crucial, people long for government to do it.”)
