Benjamin Tucker

Editor and publisher of Liberty, an anarchist and individualist periodical that began in Boston and later on moved to NY. He was a severe critic of what he known as the “four legal monopolies”: cash, property, tariffs, and patents. He started developing his anarchist sights at age eighteen. In 1877 he started a short-lived publication known as the Radical Review. He was a proponent of specific anarchism, which he called “Unterrified Jeffersonianism.” He grew up in Southern Dartmouth, Massachusetts, and he afterwards went to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Like Milton Friedman, Tucker was a well-known economic theorist.
