Summary:
==> Tom Woods interviews Federico Fernandez on the real legacy of Che. ==> Rob Bradley writes a tribute to Milton Friedman on 105th anniversary of his birth, esp. his views on energy. ==> I take issue with Tyler Cowen’s recent post when he implied that the serious conservative intellectuals were all fine with a carbon tax. (Tyler had been, in his mind, defending the honor of conservatives from Paul Krugman.) ==> I want to alert readers (especially European ones) to the Xoán de Lugo Institute. (I just linked to the English-language version of it.) Here’s how they describe themselves: The Xoán de Lugo Institute seeks to produce and disseminate studies and opinions in the field of social sciences to promote the values of free market, private property and a society

The Xoán de Lugo Institute seeks to produce and disseminate studies and opinions in the field of social sciences to promote the values of free market, private property and a society of free individuals. Its geographical scope is primarily the galician society, but studies and considerations about other areas of interest, in accordance with these values, will be included.

Especially if you can read Spanish / Galician, the site has a lot of original articles (with some reprints from Mises Brasil). I was pleasantly surprised to learn of this hotbed of anarcho-capitalist theory.
