Thirteen masterpieces of eloquent argumentation, still relevant to the issues of our own day: communism, labor unionism, protectionism, government subsidies for the arts, colonialism, the welfare state, the right to employment, and the unseen consequences of government interference with free exchange. With an introduction by F.A. Hayek.
An inspiring exposition of the natural harmony that results when people are free to pursue their individual interests. Bastiat uncovers a great truth: there is no inherent antagonism between the welfare of one and the welfare of all. In a free-market society all people can live in peace and prosperity.
