Editor's note


The third volume of The Journal of Peace, Prosperity and Freedom contains contri-
butions on a range of subjects.
    James Ostrowski opens with his paper criticising democratic peace theory. He
does not just criticise it from a few narrow perspectives as do most mainstream
scholars; he gives it a comprehensive shake-down that will leave its proponents
dumbfounded: the legal, philosophical, economic and even sociological aspects are
criticised.
    Marcus Witcher continues the focus on foreign policy with his article outlin-
ing how libertarians and neoconservatives differ, and what the consequences of the
Iraq war were on the political composition of American society.
    Robert Batemarco, Walter Block and Charles Seltzer provide a run-down of the
harmful effects of the minimum wage, which they believe have led to unemploy-
ment by pricing low skilled workers out of jobs.
    Brian Bedkober, a qualified medical practitioner, offers insights into the abuse
of the medical licensing system run by governments. He argues that eliminating
licensing and allowing a free-market to flourish would provide greater benefits for
consumers than the current system.
    William Stacey provides an explanation of libertarianism for beginners. This
is definitely an article you should keep for future reference.
    Finally, there is an interesting debate between Brian P. Simpson and Chris
Leithner on Austrian economics, and particularly its methodological foundations.
    This volume represents a labour of love; there's not much money in academic
journals so thanks must go to all contributors and referees who gave up their time.
