The Best of Bastiat 3.2: The Broken Window

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 comes from the booklet “What is Seen and What is Not Seen” and is the classic statement of this fundamental economic principle.
