One note: Bastiat quotes at some length from contemporaries. The Kindle edition formats these quotes inconsistently, sometimes italicizing and sometimes not. Due to this inconsistency, I occasionally found it difficult to distinguish the quotes from Bastiat's own writing.
This same friend also lent me the book "The Law." After reading it, I decided to purchase it for reference. The book is about economic theory from a legal standpoint. I agree with the author's viewpoint to a great extent. It is a different way to explain capitalism.
I liked this book a lot. I highly recommend to others.
First 1/2 of the book is logical, theoretical mind exercise. 2nd half debunks/analyzes various other governance theories popular at the time (1850's, Frnace). Much still applies.
Only drawback is it may make you weep at how far America has fallen from it's founding principals.
Law is organized justice which defends life, property, and liberty.
The knowledge in this book far exceeds the .99 cent price tag.
I would recommend this to anyone, especially the individuals making our laws.
