Bastiat's Legacy

Bastiat's Legacy in Economics

by J.G. Hülsmann

[http://www.mises.org/story/2035]



Claude Frédéric Bastiat (1801 — 1850) is one of the greatest economists ever. His role as organizer of the French, and inspiration of the nineteenth century continental European freetrade movement is not controversial, and all historians recognize him as a great pamphleteer — some even calling him "the most brilliant economic journalist who ever lived." [1]



It is however not generally recognized that Bastiat was also a significant theoretician whose discoveries have had a lasting importance. [2] His intellectual legacy has been unduly neglected because it concerns problems that are not on the radar screen of twentiethfirstcentury mainstream economists. It has much common ground with presentday Austrian economics, though, and the purpose of this article is to unearth some of these similarities and to help restore Bastiat to his rightful place in the history of economic science. [3]





バスティアの評価はますます高まっているようだ。

私も、バスティアの著作の翻訳プロジェクトをなんとか続行することとしよう。
