Frederic Bastiat (1801-1850)
French economist, statesman, and author. Bastiat did most of his writing during the years just before — and immediately following — the French Revolution of February 1848.

SS: I’ve probably said this a million times, but Bastiat’s my favorite political-economical writer of all time.
Happy borthday to my favorite economic and political philosopher, Claude Federic Bastiat.
And a shoutout to the BAMF, Thomas Sowell.
