Overview

“Anarcho”-capitalists are not seen as anarchists by any other strain of anarchism. While the left-leaning anarchists are notorious for engaging in heated debates amongst themselves, they are unequivocally united in the stand that “anarcho”-capitalism (or extreme neo-liberalism) will not create a free society.
Matthias Speer, 05 Feb 2003

Another name for anarcho-capitalism is "individualist anarchism".
Andrew Rogers, 05 Feb 2003

They look at the Market as the sole ideal regulator of human society, and see the government as an unnecessary and expensive intrusion into the perfect mechanisms of the Market. This receives in Europe the epithet of ultra-liberal (remember that "liberal" in Europe does not mean the same as in the States).
Jorge Candeias, 17 Aug 1999

Sometimes the word "anarchist" is used to refer what in Europe we call "neo-liberal". As I understand, this term is misleading for US ears; the usual word is "libertarian", even if this is sometimes used for (a branch of) (socialist) anarchists.
António Martins, 10 Feb 2003

Note that I don’t call the anacho-capitalists anarchists; I have never seen any them use any particular flag, by the way.
Marcus Wendel, 17 Aug 1999

We [anarcho-capitalists] are not as predisposed to flashy demonstrations and protests [as anarchists proper] so there has been less of a need to design visual propaganda like a flag.

There is a symbol is called Libertatis Æquilibritas which combines the traditional anarchist Circle-A with the Yin-Yang and the familiar dollar sign. That is probably the more widely used anarcho-capitalist symbol.

The Libertatis Æquilibritas was developed by Per Bylund. He talks about his symbol here.
