Dr. Fred Foldvary is an economist who predicted that an economic collapse would happen "around" 2008 back in 1998. He also revitalized the popular 19th century economic philosophy of Georgism under the banner of geolibertarianism. On the show we will learn how he predicted the '08 collapse a decade beforehand, when the next collapse is due, and talk about where geolibertarianism fits in on the libertarian political spectrum -- specifically in relation to anarcho-capitalism, anarcho-communism, and mutualism.

In this episode of the Lions of Liberty Podcast, host Marc Clair is joined by Fred Foldvary, economics lecturer at San Jose State University, to discuss his work “Public Good and Private Communities: The Market Provision of Social Services.” Fred explains how he took the philosophy of Georgism and took it a step further by combining it with libertaran ideas, and coined the term “geo-libertarianism”. Mr. Foldvary details how private communities have developed to provide the type of “public” services that many often presume require an overreaching, coercive government to efficiently obtain.  Fred and Marc examine several modern examples of these private communities, including the most well-known private community in the world: Walt Disney World.
