Hard Liquor, Murray Rothbard, and You: Partners in Freedom

The Murray Rothbard “Enemy of the State” flask. Some have suggested that the next logical step is a cigarette case featuring a prominent Austrian economist (did Mises smoke? I know Hayek did). I would like to see this conclude with a complete and official “Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms” set. Perhaps the Mises Institute could team up with the Ayn Rand Institute to produce customized dollar-sign cigarettes?

Disclosure: since I write for the Mises Institute (here’s today’s contribution) and will be on the faculty at Mises University at the end of next month, skeptical readers might want to take my enthusiasm for their products with a grain of salt–a grain that, perhaps, could someday be dispensed from a Frederic Bastiat or J.B. Say salt shaker.
