"A Lucid and Superb Writer"

"Bastiat was indeed a lucid and superb writer, whose brilliant and witty essays and fables to this day are remarkable and devastating demolitions of protectionism and of all forms of government subsidy and control. He was a truly scintillating advocate of an untrammeled free market."

Murray N. Rothbard, Classical Economics: An Austrian Perspective on the History of Economic Thought, quoted in The Bastiat Collection, Vol. 1.
