I'm currently reading a few books on the Austrian school of economics. I think this is the weakest point of all the argumentation for a just and moral capitalism like the fellows at the Mises institute try to argue for.

Postponing costs, even lethal consequences, and hoping that the market will be able to cope in promise of a short-term profit sounds insane to me.

But who will enforce the inclusion of the actual costs into products? Nobody can know. Currently, the only solution is "violence" in terms of state issued laws and taxes.

Did not find another approach yet, except making everything private and sue afterwards. Maybe it's indoctrination, but that does not sound more attractive to me. How would you approach that problem?

Don't be the product, buy the product!
