Writings

How Private Property Saved the Pilgrims, Hoover Digest, 1999
Excerpted and adapted from The Noblest Triumph
"Knowing that the fruits of his labor would benefit his own family and dependents, the head of each household was given an incentive to work harder. ... the division of property established a proportion or 'ratio' between act and consequence. Human action is deprived of rationality without it, and work will decline sharply as a result."
