Description 

This marvelous book compares and contrasts the motivations, morality, and effectiveness of space exploration when pursued by private entrepreneurs as opposed to government. The authors advocate market-driven, private initiatives to take the lead through competition for the exploration and exploitation of outer space. Space travel and colonization are analyzed through the prism of economic freedom and laissez-faire capitalism, in a unique and accessible book.
 
Space Capitalism goes boldly where no one has gone before!
