Laissons Faire

cover - Laissons Faire - front

In order to meet a growing demand, the Institut Coppet designed and implemented a review entitled Laissons Faire. Our goal with this journal is to offer a relevant publication to challenge the economic misconceptions of our time, and increase awareness about the French Classical Liberal School. This is a new way for us to spread the message of liberty and highlight the lack of liberty-minded politicians in France.

After 22 issues in French (list and download links available on this page), we decided to join a quaterly international edition, in English.
