The Quotable Bastiat

"If two workers wish to combine their strengths in order to share the product in accordance with agreed proportions, or exchange their products with each other, or if one wishes to make the other a loan or a gift, what does the law have to do with this? Nothing, I think, other than require the fulfilling of agreements and prevent or punish misrepresentation, violence or fraud."

From the Frédéric Bastiat Circle.
