Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Free-market roads is the libertarian concept of privately owned roads as opposed to the most normal government owned ones in existence today. Roads are often cited as a justification for the need for government action, both for their creation and maintenance. As such, free market alternatives have been proposed by libertarian opponents of government intervention. Arguments for the denationalization of roads include the alarming amounts of deaths, congestion, as well as the claim that government enterprises are inefficient and free markets could allow for a more effective cost-analysis of new roads, and prevent too many (or too few) being created, or in the wrong place. In addition, new technologies that allow automatic electronic payment of tolls would simplify a private toll-road system. Opposing arguments include that such a system is in practice unworkable or would be too complicated.
