Book #37: That Which Is Seen and That Which Is Not Seen

I took a class over the summer that had some reading assignments and one of them was an article by Frédéric Bastiat, a French economist and writer.  He believed in a free economy and invented the concept of opportunity cost, though it wasn’t coined that for another century.  He’s a pretty interesting person and the article I read by him (which I’m totally counting as a book since it was such hard work to read it) was called “That Which is Seen and That Which is Not Seen.”  He was trying to convince the French people not to support a move toward socialism.  Though it was difficult to read, I’m glad I undertook the challenge.   The concepts were eye-opening and helped me realize where fallacies exist in a socialist economy.  It would be great for anyone to read before they embrace more government control.

Goodreads rating: 4 stars.
