The Industrial Radical Is Here!

The first issue of the Molinari Institute’s long-awaited periodical, The Industrial Radical (or iRad for short), is complete and in the process of being printed, and will be available for distribution in October. I just approved the cover proof. The Industrial Radical will debut at the Molinari/C4SS booth at Libertopia in San Diego next month.

The Industrial Radical

The 40-page first issue focuses on market anarchist solutions to the various disasters that have dominated the headlines over the last decade – from the financial crisis and Middle East wars to hurricane Katrina, the BP oil spill, and the Fukushima tsunami and reactor meltdown. (The Hokusai print on the cover is our combined nod to Katrina and Fukushima.)

We also have a special section on the 2012 election, in which we advise you on whom to vote for. And yet, as a nonprofit, we cannot endorse candidates! So how can we offer voting advice? How can this antithesis be synthesised? (Okay, you’ve probably already figured that out.)

Contributors to issue #1 include Kevin Carson, Gary Chartier, David D’Amato, Phil Jacobson, Charles Johnson, Ben Kilpatrick, Tom Knapp, Sheldon Richman, Darian Worden, and your humble correspondent.

A Banner Day

I’ve just received the Molinari/C4SS banner.

No, not a digital banner – an actual physical six-foot-long vinyl banner, for our booth at Libertopia, plus some plastic thingies it’s supposed to hang from. It looks like this (click the pic for enhanced magnitude):

Now all we need to do is pay for the booth itself. And for Charles to get there. Please help us with that if you can, by clicking here.
