"No one knows what a modern court system would look like under a free market where justice and the arbitration of contracts were 'goods' to be purchased like medical insurance or otherwise obtained .... I am Rothbardian on the subject of free market court systems, which means I believe competing agencies would evolve in much the same manner as (again) insurance companies. I am less sanguine about the general structure of the competing agencies; that is, what differences would occur within them as 'selling points' upon which they could compete with their rivals?"
