What is the Bastiat Society?

The Bastiat Society is named after the great French economist, Frederic Bastiat. Bastiat was famous for making complex ideas easy to understand.

One topic widely misunderstood today is the morality of business. While businesses compete to feed, clothe, shelter, entertain and empower individuals of every age, occupation and nation, academics, intellectuals, popular artists and ambitious politicians portray business people as villains or buffoons.

It is time for business people to counterattack these gross distortions of the truth.

The Bastiat Society proclaims the productive, humane, and moral leadership of honest business people.
