The Cost of Conscription

(Don Boudreaux)


I just learned that the very first article that I ever published is now available on line.  (Actually, it might have been available on line for some time now, but I just learned about its availability this morning.  Thanks Neil G.)  This article, which appeared in the August 1979 edition of Reason, is co-authored with my great undergraduate mentor at Nicholls State University, Bill Field.  It’s title is “The Cost of Conscription.”  And truth be told, most of this essay is written by Bill.  He was kind enough to ask me, then still an undergraduate, to write this article with him, but whatever good qualities it has come exclusively from Bill.

I post it below the fold.
