Libertarian Policy Around The World

Salon’s Michael Lind once asked where all the libertarian countries were. Statist have assumed at best that no libertarian countries exist, or at worst, that countries like Somalia and Honduras are “libertarian paradises.”

While there are no pure libertarian countries, there are countries that have successfully implemented libertarian policies with positive results. Here are several such countries with libertarian policies concerning the economy, taxes, corporations, national defense, minimum wage, pensions, healthcare, education, guns, drugs, and prostitution.

The next time a statist claims there are no libertarian countries, or that Somalia is a libertarian paradise, shut them down with these examples.
