Bastiat’s Letters Published


Frederic Bastiat is FEE’s godfather and a favorite of freedom-philosophy advocates everywhere. So it is fantastic that Liberty Fund will be publishing Bastiat’s collected works under the able editorship of Jacques de Guenin and David M. Hart. The first volume to arrive is The Man and the Statesman, a collection of letters never before available in English. This is great news, indeed.
