    Frdric Bastiat: Campaigner for Free Trade,

    Political Economist, and

    Politician in a Time of Revolution


    David HartEditor, The Collected Works of Frdric Bastiat, Vol. 1

    (Liberty Fund, 2011)

    moderated by

    Jason Kuznicki

    Editor, Cato Unbound

    Frdric Bastiat was a pivotal figure in French classical liberalism in the mid-19th century. He

    suddenly emerged from the southwest province of Les Landes to assume leadership of the

    fledgling French free trade movement in 1844, which he modelled on that of Richard Cobdens

    Anti-Corn Law League in England. Bastiat then turned to a brilliant career as an economic

    journalist, debunking the myths and misconceptions people held on protectionism in particular

    and government intervention in general, which he called sophisms or fallacies." When

    revolution broke out in February 1848, Bastiat was elected twice to the Chamber of Deputies

    where he served on the powerful Finance Committee and struggled to bring government

    expenditure under control. He confounded his political opponents with his consistent

    libertarianism: he denounced the socialists for their economic policies, but he took to the

    streets to prevent the military from shooting them during the riots that broke out in June 1848.

    Until his untimely death in 1850, Bastiat was an indefatigable foe of political privilege,

    unaccountable monarchical power, the newly emergent socialist movement, and above all, the

    vested interests benefited from economic protectionism. He was a giant of 19th century

    classical liberalism, and Liberty Fund is publishing a six-volume collection of his work.

    This body of work celebrates some of the best of what we know as the American sound or

    the American experience. Jules Arthur's new work depicts a treasured century of rootsmusic that speaks of the times, social climate, and melody makers. Their voices,

    musicianship and contributions to history are now pillars that stand the test of time.

    Fuerza Natural, 2008

    Please join us for the opening reception of Oscar

    Garcia's exhibit of drawings and sculptures on

    Friday, October 14 from 6:00 - 8:00. Exhibit

    continues through November 10, 2011

    Form and illusion, simple or complex, is an

    impression. Before paper, wood or stone ever took

    shape, there is just looking at the natural, spontaneous,

    funny and sad. Be it the whispers of rustling trees, orthe gentle breath of a still model, truth has its way of

    tapping us on the shoulder. It starts as a group of lines,

    connecting points that capture the essential form of the

    subject. To try to create in art what is in life. So

    incredibly elusive; forms that suggest, material left

    untouched, a curve repeating onto intself with no end, a

    line that falls off the back without so much as a sigh."
