Free market anarchist Bryan Caplan is a professor of economics at George Mason University. He has posted a useful “Libertarian Purity Test” at his website.
As Caplan explains:
“This is the Libertarian Purity Test, which is intended to measure how libertarian you are. It isn’t intended to be any sort of McCarthyite purging device — just a form of entertainment, hopefully thought-provoking. I like it a lot better than the more famous “World’s Shortest [sic] Political Quiz” because I haven’t stated the questions with any intent to give an upward bias to a test-taker’s score, and because it gives a clearer breakdown between hard and soft-core libertarians. Enjoy, suggest your friends try it out, and see how you compare to other test-takers.”
Market anarchists and non market anarchists alike may want to check it out and see how they score.
For the record, the author scored a perfect 160. Yup. Hardcore.
The World’s Smallest Political Quiz is also well worth taking.
