Trade, Exchange, & Investment
There are two general forms of gambling (risk-taking), investment & speculation. Investment is vital for society as a whole. It’s such a powerful driver of wealth creation that the wealth generated in a truly free and civil society easily protects the many failed gamblers. Investment in a Laissez-faire (non-interventionist) free marketplace takes the form of a social experiment wherein one or more voluntary parties use the wealth they’ve gathered (through their own labor or from returns on other investments) to facilitate the development of new creative endeavors in the hope of creating something of great value for all of mankind.
