This paper compares the work of two pioneers in the field of law and liberty: F. A. Hayek and his predecessor, Frédéric Bastiat. Both these writers treat government by law as a necessary condition for the emergence of a free-market system; and they also warn that the substitution of distributive for commutative justice will impair individual freedom.
