Yes, we know, it\’s anarchy. The libertarian state writ large (or small).
No, not all that wonderful either. Yet:
Somalia functions better as a non-state than it did as a state, and it functions better than many of its peers that are states.
As ever, the solution to the absence of government, the solution to the anarchy of markets, is not simply the presence of government. It\’s (perhaps limited) (and certainly competent) government.
And in the absence of that limited and competent government it\’s entirely possible for the anarchy of markets to do better than bad government.
