    1. Ahora que muchas personas ingenuas, o simplemente desubicadas, se desgañitan diciendo que "los derechos no se discuten", libros como este nos recuerdan que esa frase es puro floro. Un análisis diferente, un poco repetitivo en su insistencia del costo económico de hacer cumplir los derechos, es decir, de que existan, postura que contrae otras como romper con la dicotomía de derechos negativos y positivos y reafirmar la importancia e inevitabilidad de la intervención estatal y el Estado de Bi [...]

    2. Made some good points, but unfortunately in an overly technical and legalistic way. It made the core of it's argument at the beginning and got repetitive after that.

    3. At the very least, reading the Cost of Rights will broaden your prespective beyond the narrowly drawn libertarian/liberal/conservative catagories that have become so ingrained in modern American political thought. Many of the points made in the book are such that they seem obvious once you have read them, though you never in a million years would have thought of them yourself. It's true, for example, that the so-called "negative rights" (rights against governmental interferance) are just as much [...]

    4. Un excelente análisis de la razón de ser de los impuestos como garantía de los derechos humanos básicos y sociales, enfocado en la economía y la justicia de los Estados Unidos de América.El logro de esta investigación es que vá más halla de las justificaciones evidentes de los tributos (salud, educación), yendo a otros ámbitos (justicia, libre mercado, entre otros).

    5. This is a book that I would highly recommend to all libertarians and fiscal conservatives and to all those who insist on affirming the negative/positive rights dichotomy. It shows clearly that even a minimal "nightwatch" state requires a lot of money and that protecting the basic "negative" rights of citizens (police, judiciary, etc.) requires considerable taxation.

    6. The subtitle of this book is "Why liberty depends on taxes." Something that is not generally appreciated by the public.
