The Law and Economics of Frédéric Bastiat
Frédéric Bastiat (1801-1850) was a French journalist, pamphleteer, politician and political economist. He was at the forefront of the free trade movement in France and wrote a book, The Law, which has become a minor classic in the legal literature and is required reading for some leaders in the American Tea Party movement. This article examines his economic and legal philosophy and discusses its relevance to twenty-first century America. This article is the first to focus primarily on Bastiats economic and legal philosophy, which has been ignored by law and economics scholars.
