markets don't exist in the absence of law, so "market logic" would not support anarchy. markets are free exchange on the basis of law. take the law away and you cant enforce contracts without recourse to private violence. private violence and legal chaos is not a better environment for markets than public violence and legal order. if it was, than societies without legal order and public law would be richer and more powerful than societies with states and legal coercion in which markets flourish.
