how would an ancap society fix the problem of poverty?
This is another question I got that I never noticed. I’ve been slacking lately.
Sorry about that.
How does a statist society solve poverty? Not very well. Statism uses the power of the state to enrich the already rich and powerful while keeping the poor in poverty.
The only thing that solves poverty is technology.
You should search the Malthusian trap. It wasn’t until the industrial revolution and the advent of technology that people came out of poverty.
The poor today live better than the kings and queens of the 17th and 18th century.
Poverty was in a vast decline until the state started intervening more and more into the economy. If the state never intervened into the economy and we had an actual free market I would be willing to bet poverty would be as rare as “some analogy that is extremely rare.”
