    Yes, he describes himself as a libertarian socialist. He formerly debated William F. Buckley; that debate is available to watch on youtube. You're right about Hoppe. The man has a very "german" demeanor about him At the same time I think he's one of the best economic intellectuals still alive.

    If this was on Pay Per View, i would pay for it!

    an even better debate from an economics perspective would be Paul Krugman vs Tom Woods, imo. I'm dying for a good intellectual heavyweight, Free-market vs. Socialism debate though, and Chomsky vs. Hoppe would be something worth watching.

    Chomsky is too old (he's over 80 now, I believe). I like him, but he's rapidly losing coherency when he speaks and should be at home enjoying himself. He's lost his wit.
