The term "free trade" is often bandied about by politicians and activists on both sides of the political spectrum -- but what does it really signify? In this concise volume, French economist Frederic Bastiat offers a comprehensive definition of what a market characterized by unconstrained trade looks like. more...

The economic debate over free trade versus protectionism is as relevant today as it was in the mid-nineteenth century, when the scathing takedown Sophisms of the Protectionists was first published.
