Essays On Political Economy

Frederick Bastiat

Essays on Political Economy is a collection of essays written by the French economist and political theorist, Frederic Bastiat. The book was first published in 1848 and is considered to be one of the most important works in the field of classical liberal economics. In this book, Bastiat presents his views on various economic topics such as free trade, protectionism, taxation, and government intervention in the economy. He argues that free trade is essential for the prosperity of nations and that protectionism only benefits a few at the expense of many. He also emphasizes the importance of property rights and argues that taxation should be limited to the necessary functions of government. Through his essays, Bastiat challenges the prevailing economic theories of his time and presents a clear and concise argument for a laissez-faire approach to economic policy. His writing style is engaging and accessible, making complex economic concepts easy to understand for readers of all backgrounds. Overall, Essays on Political Economy is a seminal work in the field of economics and a must-read for anyone interested in understanding the principles of classical liberalism and free-market economics.This scarce antiquarian book is a facsimile reprint of the old original and may contain some imperfections such as library marks and notations.
