Think Freely Media presents Common Sense with Paul Jacob



On January 28, 1912, Belgian economist Gustave de Molinari died. One of the last major economists of the French Liberal School, heir to Frederic Bastiat, and a prominent advocate of laissez faire, Molinari’s last book, The Society of To-morrow (the only one of his many books to be translated into English in his day) envisioned a future of extremely limited government, and argued against the growing tide of socialism and war that was becoming all too apparent as the future of Europe.

Indeed, the old liberal order of Europe ended with the beginning of the Great War, exactly two and on half years after Molinari’s demise.
