More About Frederic Bastiat

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Frederic Bastiat (1801-1850) was a French economist, statesman, and author. He was the leader of the free-trade movement in France from its inception in 1840 until his untimely death in 1850. The first 45 years of his life were spent in preparation for five tremendously productive years writing in favor of freedom. Bastiat was the founder of the weekly newspaper Le Libre Echange, a contributor to numerous periodicals, and the author of sundry pamphlets and speeches dealing with the pressing issues of his day. Most of his writing was done in the years directly before and after the Revolution of 1848-a time when France was rapidly embracing socialism. As a deputy in the Legislative Assembly, Bastiat fought valiantly for the private property order, but unfortunately the majority of his colleagues chose to ignore him. Frederic Bastiat remains one of the great champions of freedom whose writings retain their relevance.

Frederic Bastiat was born in 1801 and died in 1850.

Bastiat triumphs...Deachman does okay  Dec 27, 2002
This work could well have been titled the "Capitalist Manifesto," such was influence it and its author had on contemporary Europe. Unlike their communist counterparts, sadly, Bastiat and his "Economic Fallacies" have faded from the public eye. Nevertheless, Bastiat stands among the great advocates for free-trade that the West has ever known. Even though the battle against tariffs is largely won in principle, the war against protectionism goes on. His arguments are clear, simple, usually water-tight, and entirely relevant in the twenty-first century. His wit is exceptional and memorable, especially his classic "Candlemaker's Petition," which could very well have inspired an episode of "The Simpsons." Bastiat gets a five-star rating, but it's the translation that's on trial here.

It's important to note that Deachman translated this work in Canada during the early Depression, so his English is occasionally a little odd to the eyes of this American. Where footnotes would suffice, Deachman takes some dubious liberties in excising portions of the original French that he deems irrelevant. His prose, while good on its own, is a little too clunky at points, whereas Bastiat's is usually very light and crisp. My biggest nit to pick is the inconsistency in his use of currency units: sometimes using francs, sometimes pounds, and other times dollars. But still, it's a good translation of a great work.

Buy it. Read it. Love it.
