On March 17, 2011 Agora Financial announced that it had acquired Laissez Faire Books from the International Society for Individual Liberty (ISIL). It is now a subsidiary in the family of Agora Financial. Laissez Faire has a commitment to providing its readers with alternative ways to grow and protect their wealth outside of Wall Street, and as a result differs from other Agora Financial investment publications and is not included in any Agora Financial lifetime memberships.
