L. Neil Smith at The Libertarian Enterprise - A book review. Convinced me. I went right to, and pre-ordered my copy for $9.95 plus $3.95 shipping. They expect it to ship on Feb. 24, meaning I should have it in my hot little hands a couple of days later. [tle]

Not to give anything away, The Walton Street Tycoons is about the entrepreneurial genius of a big, bright double handful of almost junior high kids in an economically moribund community whose corrupt socialist leaders are jealous and want to shut them down and steal all they've accomplished--with no more understanding of how it was done than the second-handers who tried to torture John Galt into leading them.

It's also about the way taxation, "safety", "health", and other regulation, and--100 extra points for Jim!--professional licensure destroy what others have striven with all their might to build. It's about a new Renaissance that will result if all that can be done away with.
