Free Cities Podcast's podcast|Liberty|Freedom|Ideas

Our mission statement at the Free Cities Podcast is to produce a weekly podcast with examples of people moving towards freedom and away from force. Most of our episodes will consist of interviews with people who are actively involved in this peaceful transition, or historical examples of people who have moved towards a freer society. Decentralization is a huge component of moving people towards more freedom so, some of our episodes will look at the growing trend of decentralization in business and how flatter structures can result in better feedback and better products. Peaceful voluntary co-operation between individuals has been responsible for the enormous growth in human prosperity, and we believe that markets can and do provide services better than governments can. I hope you enjoy the podcasts and articles on this site. The purpose of the content is to demonstrate that voluntary co-operation between individuals is the best solution to problems. Please feel free to provide feedback and provide suggestions for future guests on the show.

Andreas Kohl Martinez is on the show to discuss Lichtenstein, this tiny country strongly follows Austrian Economic Policies. The country defies many objections to Libertarian principles, they have no armed forces, a small population with few natural resources yet they the world's highest per capita GDP, and a diverse economy that includes: agriculture, manufacturing, and banking. It also allows the right of secession to any town or village within its borders by a simple majority vote. The monarch of Lichtenstein receives no tax revenue. Yet the country has never been invaded and has had the moral backbone to provide passports to Jews in WWII and refused to repatriate Russian refugees after WWII a move that saved hundreds of lives and was something no other country did. Lichtenstein is an amazing example for anyone interested in Liberty.
