Counter-Economics was intended to be the magnum opus of Samuel Edward Konkin III — the creator, original theoretician, and premier activist of Agorism. The summation of all his work and research over 15 years of libertarian/anarchist activism, the book remained unfinished by Konkin at the time of his death. This ePub edition includes the existing first six chapters (four more are being sought) and an outline for the other twelve.
“Are you reading a self-help book, a personal-liberation manual, a financial advisory, an esoteric economics text, an anti-political platform, a muckraking history, a sensational exposè of underground life, or an anarchist cookbook? The answer is all of the above.
“The focus of the book is to show the reader what Counter-Economics is. We’ll look at it in every aspect of life in all parts of the globe and beyond. Black market; grey market; dissidence foreign and domestic; tax resistance; economic feminism; underground schools and shopping centers; gold, silver, barter, and illegal aliens; creative computing and secure information systems; gun-running and Bible-smuggling; life extension and intelligence increase; self-fulfillment and psychiatric resistance; sensational exploits and cold, hard, historical revisionism; alteration of inner space and outer space — it’s all here.”
