Hi Dr.Block,

It’s been almost a year since I started my PhD in International Business (currently in my 2nd year), a decision that you encouraged me to do has it was the most fun for me. I have the following concerns:

V: This Question have been circling my mind me for a while; How an an-cap society will work if we know not every individual is rational?

WB: why not? Private police will be more effective in banning from society irrational criminals.

V: I will like to participate in Mises RGS or Fellowship, do you have any advice on a topic for research? I’m currently working in an association of FDI and the exports of goods and service in Latin America and the Caribbean

WB: That’s a good topic.

V: I will like to step-up my writing any recommendations?

WB: Spend lots of time writing. Eschew perfectionism. When I first started writing, I put a little sign up near my wall. It said, the next thing I write will be perfect. This one, my present project, I’ll just do the best I can. I used to suffer from perfectionism. I thought, I must write perfectly, and I never can. No one can, not even Mises or Rothbard. So, wouldn’t write at all, since my contribution wouldn’t be perfect.

V: I believe that combing my PhD with law school will help my career has and scholar and professionally speaking, are you aware of any libertarian friendly schools?

WB: G Mason, Chicago, there are many others.

V: Thank you in advance

WB: My pleasure
