The Bastiat Scrolls represent bi-monthly narratives designed to acquaint readers with diverse ideas, intellectual exercises, and perspectives aimed at revitalizing and advancing discourse within the libertarian sphere.

The collection derives its name from the distinguished economic journalist, Frédéric Bastiat (1801-1850), renowned not for groundbreaking economic discoveries but for his discerning wit. Although lacking in groundbreaking contributions to the field of economics, 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.

Were he 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.
