Overview

Imagine the charter city of Ur in which there are no taxes, no forced regulation, and no laws except one--harm no one. It would be a libertarian paradise--a productive, free-market utopia with no equal on Earth. But would it work? Would people behave or fall into a chaotic dog-eat-dog arena in which the strong would simply crush the weak?

Jacob Tanner is about to find out. He will take his life-saving pharmaceutical company to Ur in order to escape an overbearing government bureaucracy. But just when Jacob's drug company becomes profitable, he is confronted with financial dilemmas and a shocking truth about his industry and his business partners. He can prevent the deadly epidemic his drug treats, but in order to do so, he must overcome a corporate conspiracy that stands to profit from the disease.

"Chaos and Kingdom" plunges the reader into the cutthroat world of the modern industrialist struggling to create a valuable product between the extremes of constrictive government regulation and unfettered capitalism.
