The notion of carving out an area inside an existing country with its own set of economically free laws is gaining steam in the 21st century, with Honduras the focus of the latest efforts to create a free community featuring a thriving business climate, schools, hospitals, welfare infrastructure, and security.

Bell will sit down with Reason.tv to look at the challenges, failures and triumphs in Honduras, and make some predictions about the future of this principled libertarian model.
