Going a bit off topic, but I

Going a bit off topic, but I would highly suggest that you look at some of Posner's earlier works in the field of law and economics, and especially "The Economics of Justice." There's some really great stuff in there.

Although philosophically different, Posner is rather libertarian in many respects except for privacy rights issues. I don't think you should completely write him off.
