Tribute to Jacques de Guenin

, by David Hart

By David M. Hart (Oct. 25, 2015).

I first met Jacques when he visited Liberty Fund in 2004 to discuss the translation project we had undertaken as a result of his inspiration and under his editorial leadership. I met a charming, soft-spoken man who was obviously dedicated to Bastiat, to the principle of individual liberty, and to the translation project. And his love of Bastiat rubbed off onto us.

"Today’s fancy is to enrich all social classes at the expense of one another; it is to generalise Spoliation under the...



Introduction to the 5th Freedom Weekend

, by Patrick de Casanove

Our first Freedom Weekend was devoted to the economic freedom that gives rise to growth and prosperity. It was based on the Index of Economic Freedom published every year by Heritage Foundation. For this 5th Freedom Weekend, it seemed to me essential to review the situation with regard to economic freedom which has been stagnating at a global level since 2010.
