How is a presentation on ancap appropriate for a business communications class? I could understand for a poli sci or econ class, but...

Understanding economics is important in business, especially Austrian economics instead of that Keynesian shit.

Keynes didn't understand economics...

Licenses: A licenses is asking permission to do X and is essentially a shake down of the individual, this creates a barrier to entry and only serves to help the larger corporations and harms smaller businesses. The alternative in a Free Market these things wouldn't exist helping the poor.

I expect licenses would exist in a free market.  They have a place there as a certification of quality or skill.  The government just takes things to extremes, like needing a license to arrange flowers.  

Maybe but I call those things certificates, I really don't see a trade school issuing licenses. I could be wrong, but if I am the substance of the argument stands id est I don't need permission to do anything with myself or my property.
Do you realize how radical you sound?! You're saying you should own yourself. That's, like, almost the same thing as saying you shouldn't be a slave!

Unfortunately you are not the first person to say that. I know you're joking but they weren't it's sad.

I see licenses existing in a free market; however, they would be a little different. For example, you could perform heart surgery without a medical license, with consent of your patient, of course. BUT, very few would allow you to perform such a surgery on them, and you wouldn't be able to find employment, because you aren't professionally accredited with a license. Licenses are reasonable, in a free market, as a means to discriminate between who is qualified, and who is not. (And also who is allowed to operate on the property of private companies).

A license is granted by the state. A certification is earned privately.

Call it what you will. Without a state granting them, they're certifications.

Huh

This isn't in the definition of license: "A permit from an authority to own or use something, do a particular thing, or carry on a trade." An authority isn't necessarily the state: there are private authorities as well.

Yup, the driving school would give you the certificate.  The road company would give you permission (license) to use its roads.
