About this Title:

This is part of “The Best of the Online Library of Liberty” which is a collection of some of the most important material in the OLL. This article was written when the memory of the socialist experiments of the 1848 Revolution were still fresh in the minds of the political economists. Faucher castigates the economists for taking the right of property for granted and for assuming it as a given. So he provides a vigorous defence of the right of private property in order to counter the socialists’ critique.
