“Existence, faculties, and assimilation—in other words, personality, freedom, and property—this is man in a nutshell.”

These simple words came from the distinguished economic journalist, Frédéric Bastiat (1801-1850), renowned not for ground-breaking economic discoveries but for his discerning wit. Bastiat’s enduring legacy lies in his ability to render economic concepts intelligible and instill in the reader a profound appreciation for the elegance of free markets.

Bastiat Scrolls, dedicated to upholding his legacy, serve as Students for Liberty’s rich repository of materials exploring the philosophy, history, and theory of liberty. We provide bi-monthly narratives through original essays, reprints from prominent classical liberals and libertarians, and contemporary thinkers within the libertarian architecture. The scroll initiative is crafted to introduce readers to various ideas, intellectual explorations, and viewpoints aimed at rejuvenating and propelling discourse within the libertarian community.

Were Bastiat present to comment on contemporary global socio-economic issues, it is conceivable that the internet would be inundated with videos capturing his incisive perspectives, astute observations, and intellectual prowess, akin and reminiscent to a series of thought-provoking presentations and erudite discourses.

The Bastiat Scrolls is spearheaded by Dyuti Pandya, SASFL’s former academic coordinator (2020-2022)

Novelty and Uniqueness: Aim for novelty and uniqueness in your approach. Offer a fresh perspective on liberty, weaving in innovative insights that distinguish your scroll from conventional narratives.
