The Best of Bastiat 3.1: Petition of the Manufacturers of Candles

The Best of Bastiat (BOB) is a collection of some of the best material in Liberty Fund’s 6 volume edition of The Collected Works of Frédéric Bastiat (2011-). They are chapter length extracts and have been edited as pamphlets for easier distribution in PDF, ePub, and Kindle formats. These extracts should be useful in the classroom, discussion groups, or material for a literature table for outreach. This is another one of his best known pamphlets in which candle makers petition the government requesting that it ban the sun in order to increase their sale of candles.
