  • I’ve written a new children’s book that uses a fun story and engaging illustrations to convey the ideas in Bastiat’s The Law to kids age 6-10. It’s called The Tuttle Twins Learn About The Law. Here’s the website. If this book sells well, we’ll be turning it into an entire series. Each book will focus on a different aspect of liberty: the non-aggression principle, division of labor, intended/unintended consequences, etc. etc. We’ve got plenty of available material to persuade adults to support liberty, but there’s a big void in the marketplace for educational material for kids. We’re going to be filling that void.

  • In the wake of Obama’s betrayal of the liberal/progressive movement, Obama is becoming increasingly unpopular with those on the left. As more and more liberals wake up to the fact that the Democratic Party no longer (if they ever did) represents their ideals, it becomes increasingly clear that this is probably the best time to recruit them to the libertarian cause. What are some ways we can reach out to liberals?

  • Investment Biker is a wonderful mix of motorcycle adventure, economic investment in emerging markets and world culture written by Jim Rogers after he and his companion traveled the globe for almost two years and covered 105,000 km on BMW motorcycles. Now twenty years have passed and you can gauge how well Roger’s observations on the breakup of the USSR were and what came of the regions he traveled through. As he enters and exits numerous smaller countries in Africa and South America you see how he learns about people’s trust, or lack of, in their state operations. Upon that you begin to see how his investment works and what kinds of regulations stifle economic development. All the while stamping 50 countries in their passports. If you happen to be in Birmingham you can see Jim and Tabitha’s well traveled bikes at the Barbers Motorsports Museum.
