The Bastiat Society promotes the fact that the world is getting better, and it’s the creation of wealth through business that is doing it.

The Society’s argument can be simply stated:

  • Trade is a fundamental and virtuous human activity.
  • Peaceful and profitable trade creates wealth.
  • Wealth makes the world better.
  • Those who create wealth through trade are not villains, but are the true owners of the moral high ground and benefactors of the human race.

Instead of abandoning the moral high ground to glib academics, politicians, and other condescending moralists, the Bastiat Society reclaims the moral authority of peaceful and profitable business.
