"Each of us has a natural right to defend his person, his liberty, and his property." Political economist and classic liberal theorist, Frederic Bastiat, speaks out against the tendency toward socialism and what he labels as the government's "stupid greed and false philanthropy." He resoundingly refutes the argument that government should be allowed to impose its plans on us by passing laws and then forcing us to pay for them through taxes. A landmark bestseller that has influenced and inspired the libertarian philosophy worldwide.

About the Author

Frederic Bastiat, who was born two hundred years ago, was a leader of the French laissez-faire tradition in the first half of the nineteenth century. He was influenced by Cobden's Anti-Corn Law League and became a convinced free trader. Joseph Schumpeter described Bastiat as "the most brilliant economic journalist who ever lived."
