AUBURN, ALABAMA – April 12, 2013 – Molinari Institute –
The Molinari Institute, a left-wing market anarchist think tank based in Auburn, Alabama, announced today the addition of Gary Chartier to its board of directors. Chartier is Professor of Law and Business Ethics and Associate Dean of the Tom and Vi Zapara School of Business at La Sierra University in Riverside, California; author of Economic Justice and Natural Law, The Conscience of an Anarchist, and Anarchy and Legal Order: Law and Politics for a Stateless Society; co-editor with Charles W. Johnson of Markets Not Capitalism: Individualist Anarchism Against Bosses, Inequality, Corporate Power, and Structural Poverty; and a blogger at Bleeding Heart Libertarians. He already serves as Senior Fellow and Trustee of the Center for a Stateless Society, a media center that serves as an autonomous extension of the Molinari Institute.
Its a distinct honor to be associated with the Molinari Institute, said Chartier. I welcome this exciting opportunity to join a team of capable philosophers committed to highlighting the liberatory potential of bottom-up social organization and market freedom!
Molinari Institute president Roderick T. Long added, Gary Chartier is one of the best libertarian thinkers working today, and one of the foremost defenders of the liberatory potential of radically freed markets as a humane alternative to both hierarchical capitalism and the monopoly state. Were absolutely delighted to have him on board.
Chartier joins philosophers Roderick T. Long (Auburn University), Charles W. Johnson (Alliance of the Libertarian Left), and Jennifer McKitrick (University of Nebraska Lincoln) on the Molinari Institute board.
The mission of the Molinari Institute is to promote understanding of the philosophy of Market Anarchism as a sane, consensual alternative to the hypertrophic violence of the State. The Institute takes its name from Gustave de Molinari (1819-1912), originator of the theory of Market Anarchism.
