individualist anarchism againstbosses, inequality, corporate power,and structural poverty
Edited by Gary Chartier & Charles W. Johnson
Individualist anarchists believe in mutual exchange, not economic privilege. Theybelieve in freed markets, not capitalism. They defend a distinctive response to thechallenges of ending global capitalism and achieving social justice: eliminate thepolitical privileges that prop up capitalists.Massive concentrations of wealth, rigid economic hierarchies, and unsustainablemodes of production are not the results of the market form, but of marketsdeformed and rigged by a network of state-secured controls and privileges to thebusiness class.
Markets Not Capitalism
explores the gap between radically freedmarkets and the capitalist-controlled markets that prevail today. It explains howliberating market exchange from state capitalist privilege can abolish structuralpoverty, help working people take control over the conditions of their labor, andredistribute wealth and social power.Featuring discussions of socialism, capitalism, markets, ownership, laborstruggle, grassroots privatization, intellectual property, health care, racism, sexism,and environmental issues, this unique collection brings together classic essays by
leading fgures in the anarchist tradition, including Proudhon and Voltairine de
Cleyre, and such contemporary innovators as Kevin Carson and Roderick Long. Itintroduces an eye-opening approach to radical social thought, rooted equally inlibertarian socialism and market anarchism.“We on the left need a good shake to get us thinking, and these argumentsfor market anarchism do the job in lively and thoughtful fashion.” – Alexander Cockburn, editor and publisher,
Anarchy is not chaos; nor is it violence. This rich and provocative gatheringof essays by anarchists past and present imagines society unburdened bystate, markets un-warped by capitalism. Those whose preference is for aneconomy that is humane, decentralized, and free will read this book with – 
dare I use the word? – proft.”
  – Bill Kaufmann, author of
Bye Bye, Miss American Empire
“It will be hard for any honest libertarian to read this book – or others like
it – and ever again be taken in by the big business-fnanced policy institutes
and think tanks. In a world where libertarianism has mostly been deformedinto a defense of corporate privilege, it is worth being told or remindedwhat a free market actually is. Our ideal society is not ‘Tesco/Wal-Martminus the State.’ It is a community of communities of free people. All thanksto the authors and editors of this book.” – Sean Gabb, director, UK Libertarian Alliance“Libertarianism is often seen as a callous defense of privilege in the face ofexisting (and unjust) inequalities. That’s because it too often is. But it doesn’thave to be, and this fascinating collection of historic and current argument
and scholarship shows why. Even readers who disagree will fnd much to
think about.” – Ken MacLeod, author of
