The Best of Bastiat 3.3: The Utopian

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 one of Bastiat’s sophisms in which he imagines himself to be a politician who has the power to radically liberalize society from the top down but pulls back from doing so because he doesn’t have the support of the people.
