They made important contributions in the ten years between which transformed the way economics was thought and done. Some of their innovations included the following: the appearance of a more radical radical libertarianism view of political economy in the areas of free banking Coquelin , and the theory of plunder, subjective value theory, free trade and peace Bastiat.
They also began to challenge some of the key principles of the orthodox classical school of Ricardo, Malthus, and Smith, with new ideas about rent, value theory, and Malthusianism Bastiat and the private provision of public goods Molinari , and also free competitive banking Coquelin. Some of these new directions in French political economy are discussed, with an emphasis on the work of Bastiat. The volume contains his correspondence and many political essays. In the correspondence we see him moving from being an obscure Provincial Magistrate in the south west of France to becoming one of the leading political economists in Paris.
We also see a more personal side to Bastiat in some letters which touch on the topics of the condition of women, fashion, religion, and his considerable wit and humour. Some of the less well known political essays reveal his activity as a revolutionary journalist during the rioting of February and June It should read alongside a sampling of his correspondence which can be found at the OLL.
His successful predictions need to be seen against the unsuccessful predictions of socialists of all kinds made in the same period. Whether democratic socialist or revolutionary Marxist socialist, the predictions of inevitable socialist revolution bringing about peace, prosperity and freedom for the mass of people have been proven to be hopelessly wrong by the extraordinary events of the 20th century.
Abstract: This paper examines the midth century century French classical school of political economists and compares them to the modern Austrian school of economics which emerged in the late 20th century. How many ideas concerning economic and social theory history, sociology were shared by the two schools of thought?
Did Leonard Liggio introduce Rothbard to these French writers? The historian has to know what Bastiat was doing between and in order to understand what he was thinking and and why he thought the things he did. Studying the texts by themselves in not sufficient. Studying the events of his life without reference to the evolution of his ideas is also not sufficient.
Bastiat provides us with a good example of an individual who had a set of well-thought out though evolving ideas upon which he based his actions in order to achieve certain specific goals. He modified his ideas as circumstances changed, he adapted his strategies to achieve his goals, and he cooperated with other individuals who shared his ideas and his goals.
The biographical study of his life provides the historian with the information which is needed to understand his ideas, his purposes, and his strategies, as well as to evaluate his successes and failures as a man of ideas and of action. Thinking is to deliberate beforehand over future action and to reflect afterwards upon past action. Thinking and acting are inseparable… But thinking is always a manifestation of individuals.

His theory emerged in the last 3 years of his life as he intensified his battle against protectionism and socialism, first as a journalist, then as a politician in the Chamber of Deputies during Second Republic, and then as an economic theorist. In this paper I would like to explore in more detail what Bastiat thought about the history of plunder and what part it plays in his social and economic theory.
