Additional Books by Frédéric Bastiat
Ideas on Liberty columnist Russell Roberts calls The Law “phenomenal! An amazing and timeless treatment of the cost of using government to solve problems.” This slim volume is a classic — elegant and enduring, with the power to change the way people view the political process.
Originally published in 1850, just before Bastiat's death, Harmonies is a natural complement to Economic Sophisms. Bastiat uncovers the great truth that lies at the heart of society, namely that the interests of all people are fundamentally compatible, that there is and can be no antagonism between the welfare of one and the welfare of all, and that all people can live in peace and harmony provided there is a free and open market for goods and services.
Although written 150 years ago, Bastiat's devastatingly accurate attacks of the illogical self-serving arguments of protectionists remain both relevant and entertaining. Among the gems in Sophisms are “The Negative Railroad,” “Petition of the Candlemakers,” and “The Physiology of Plunder.”
