About The Circle Bastiat

“The Circle Bastiat” is the unofficial title of the Mises Economics Blog.  It is named for the Circle Bastiat, a group of Murray Rothbard’s closest friends and disciples which flourished from 1953-1959. They met regularly at Rothbard’s Manhattan apartment and named their group after the great nineteenth-century French classical liberal and economist.

From left to right are Circle Bastiat members Ralph Raico, Murray Rothbard, George Reisman, Robert Hessen, and Leonard Liggio.
