Frederic Bastiat

Frederic Bastiat

was a French classical liberal theorist, political economist, and member of the French assembly.
It must be admitted that the tendency of the human race toward liberty is largely thwarted, especially in France. This is greatly due to a fatal desire-learned from the teachings of antiquity-that our writers on public affairs have in common: They desire to set themselves above mankind in order to arrange, organize, and regulate it according to their fancy.More Frederic Bastiat quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

There is not a tool, an implement, or a machine that has not resulted in a decrease in the contribution of human labor. Labor is not made permanently idle [though]; when replaced in one special category... it turns its attack against other obstacles on the main road to progress.More Frederic Bastiat quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
