Introduction

On this page we plan to list in chronological order the works of Frédéric Bastiat. This will include his articles, pamphlets, published book, and his correspondence. We will provide the date (if known), the title in English and French, its place of original publication, its location in the 7 volume French edition of his "complete works" edited by Paillottet and published by Guillaumin, and its location in the Liberty Fund English translation of his works.

We are also creating a chronological version of Bastiat's writings which only be available online. As the printed version becomes available in digital form we will add it to the chronological version. Thus, this is a work in progress. We have divided Bastiat's works into 4 parts based upon the key periods and events in his life:

  1. Early Writings: The Bayonne and Mugron Years, 1819–1844
  2. The “Paris” Writings I: Bastiat and the Free Trade Movement (Oct. 1844 - Feb. 1848)
  3. The “Paris” Writings II: Bastiat the Politician, Anti-Socialist, and Economist (Feb. 1848 - Dec. 1850)
  4. The Unfinished Treatises: The Social and Economic Harmonies and The History of Plunder (1850–51)

See also A Reader's Guide to the Works of Frédéric Bastiat (1801-1850).

This is a work in progress as the volumes of the Liberty Fund gradually appear over the next few years, beginning in 2012.

Sources

The main source for this translation is the 7 volume 2nd edition of the Oeuvres complètes de Frédéric Bastiat, edited by Prosper Paillottet and Roger de Fontenay (1862-64) with additional letters drawn from a collection published in 1877, Lettres d’un habitant des Landes, Frédéric Bastiat. (Paris: A. Quantin, 1877). [See below for details]. Paillottet took material from Bastiat's unpublished papers, his published books, and from a number of journals and other publications which are listed below. Bastiat's papers are not accessible to us but wherever possible we have checked Paillottet's edition against the originals. Additional material which was not in Paillottet's edition has been added when we have come across it, such as some letters and journal articles discovered by Jean-Claude Paul-Dejean and transcriptions of speeches discovered by David Hart. These additions have been indicated in the text.

Newspapers and Journals which pubished Bastiat's writings:

  • La Chalosse
  • La Sentinelle des Pyrenées
  • Le Mémorial bordelais
  • Le Journal des Landes
  • Le Journal des Économistes
  • Le Journal des Débats
  • Le Courrier français
  • Le Libre-Échange
  • La République française
  • Jacques Bonhomme
  • L’Economiste Belge

La Chalosse (1837-38): La Chalosse was a weekly journal published in the town of Saint-Sever to serve the needs of the Arrondissement of Saint-Sever. It appeared between December 1836 and March 1876. Bastiat’s first published piece in the journal was a series on "The Canal beside the Adour” (18 June-20 Aug. 1837). He then published two more in 1838 on "Reflections on the Question of Dueling” (Feb. 1838) and “On the Basque Language” (April, 1838).

La Sentinelle des Pyrenées (1843-44): La Sentinelle des Pyrénées was a paper which appeared 3 times a week and was published in the town of Bayonne between 1831-1848. Bastiat was born in Bayonne in 1801 and had business interests there. He published 9 articles in the paper between March 1843 and August 1844, with his first ever published articles on free trade, "Free Trade. State of the Question in England” appearing in May and June 1843.

Le Journal des Économistes (1844-1851): The Journal of the Société d’économie politique, which appeared from December 1841 until the fall of France, in 1940. It was published by the firm of Guillaumin, which also published the writings of most of the liberals of the period. The Journal des Économistes was the leading journal of the free-market economists (known as “les économistes”) in France in the second half of the nineteenth century. It was edited by Adolphe Blanqui (1841-42), Hippolyte Dussard (1843-45), Joseph Garnier (1845-55), Henri Baudrillart (1855-65), Joseph Garnier (1865-81), Gustave de Molinari (1881-1909), and Yves Guyot (1910-?). Bastiat published many articles in the journal, many of which were later published as pamphlets and books, and his works were all reviewed there. There are fifty-eight entries under Bastiat’s name in the table of contents of the journal for the period 1841 to 1865.

Le Mémorial bordelais (1846): The Mémorial bordelais was published between March 1814 and October 1862. It was a daily newspaper published in the city of Bordeaux which covered political, commercial, maritime, and literary matters of interest to the inhabitants of the department of the Gironde. Bastiat was a frequent contributor during 1846 writing a total of 20 articles between February and October. They were designed to appeal to the merchants in the city to support the French Free Trade Association which he co-founded on 23 February 1846. A national association was formed in Paris on 10 May 1846. Bastiat’s first articles in the journal announced a "Plan for an Anti-Protectionist League” (8-10 Feb. 1846).

Le Courrier français (1846): Le Courrier français (1820-1846) was a liberal and anti-clerical newspaper founded by the constitutional monarchist Auguste-Hilarion, comte de Kératry (1769-1859). It was suspended and threatened with legal action several times during the 1820s for its stand against the French intervention in Spain and for criticizing the established church. The banker Jacques Lafitte (1767-1844) supported it financially. It was more popular during the July Monarchy but still remained a small circulation paper and was forced to close in 1846. Hippolyte Castille was a regular contributor. Both Bastiat and Molinari also wrote for it on occasion. Bastiat wrote 10 articles for the journal in its last year of operation between April and November 1846, mainly on free tree issues (including most notably the official Toast given to Richard Cobden for his celebration dinner held in Paris in August 1846 following his successful repeal of the protectionist Corn Laws).

Le Journal des Débats (1846-1848): Journal founded in 1789 by the Bertin family and managed for almost forty years by Louis-François Bertin. The journal underwent several changes of political positions: it was against Napoléon during the First Empire; under the second restoration it became conservative rather than reactionary; and under Charles X it supported the liberal stance espoused by the Doctrinaires. Bastiat wrote 5 articles which appeared in the Journal: 2 letters to the editor in May 1846, a series of letters to Considerant which were late published as a separate pamphlet Property and Plunder (July 1848), a longer version of his essay on “The State” (Sept. 1848), and an essay on cutting the tax on salt in Jan. 1849. It should be noted that Bastiat published the longer version of his famous essay “The State” in the 25 September 1848 issue of the JDD. Gustave de Molinari was an editor in the 1870s.

Le Journal des Landes (1848): The Journal des Landes was a weekly journal published in the town of Mont-de-Marsan which was where the General Council of Les Landes was based. Bastiat was elected to the Council in November 1833. He only wrote one article for this journal “On the Referendum for the Election of the President of the Republic” (Aug. 1848).

Le Libre-Échange (1846-1848): The weekly journal of the Association pour la liberté des échanges. It began on 29 November 1846 and closed on 16 April 1848 as a result of the revolution.The first sixty-four issues were published by Bastiat, the editor in chief, and Joseph Garnier; the last eight issues were published by Charles Coquelin. The journal’s editorial board included Anisson-Dupéron (pair de France), Bastiat, Adolphe Blanqui, Gustave Brunet (assistant to the mayor of Bordeaux), Campan (secretary of the Chamber of Commerce of Bordeaux), Michel Chevalier, Charles Coquelin, Charles Dunoyer, Léon Faucher, Alcide Fonteyraud, Joseph Garnier, Louis Leclerc, Gusgtave de Molinari, Prosper Paillottet, Horace Say, and Louis Wolowski.

La République française (26 Feb. - 28 March, 1848): Bastiat was involved in two short-lived revolutionary magazines in 1848. The first appeared two days after the revolution broke out in February and was called La République française and the second appeared in June and July and was called Jacques Bonhomme. La République française appeared daily and was edited by Frédéric Bastiat, Hippolyte Castille, and Gustave de Molinari. It appeared in 30 issues between 26 February and 28 March. The format of the magazine was only one or two pages which could be handed out on street corners or pasted to walls so that passers by could read them. The first issue had a statement of the editors' republican views.

Jacques Bonhomme (11 June - 13 July, 1848): Undaunted at the failure of their first effort in February, Molinari and Frédéric Bastiat decided to launch another journal, this time directed squarely at working people, to be called Jacques Bonhomme, which comes from the nickname given to the average working Frenchman. They were joined by Charles Coquelin, Alcide Fonteyraud, and Joseph Garnier. The journal appeared biweekly and was handed out on the streets of Paris but only lasted for four issues between 11 June and 13 July. Shortly after the first issue appeared the June Days uprising (23-26 June) took place. Shortly afterwards they closed down the magazine for reasons of safety.

L’Economiste Belge: While Molinari was in Brussels teaching at the Musée royal de l'industrie belge he also edited his own journal called the Économiste belge (The Belgian Economist). In the pages of this short journal, which was more like a newsletter than anything else as it was only 12 pages long and appeared bi-weekly and then weekly, he promoted the causes of free trade, administrative reform, his idea of labour exchanges, and other matters which came to his attention. The journal appeared between January 1855 and December 1868 when his wife died and he decided to move back to Paris to work as a journalist with the Journal des débats. Molinari published three previously unpublished pieces by Bastiat in his journal: a letter to Jobard on intellectual property rights to inventions in January 1848; a Letter to an Ecclesiastic in March 1848; and “Three Pieces of Advice” (c. 1850) which he would give if he were the President of the Republic.
