This subject is not one where much research has been done although the writer below has in fact achieved a useful result. Bastiat expands on the benefits of exchange, "In consequence of Exchange, the gain of each is the gain of all," location the proof of which is "each man is more likely to prosper in proportion to the general prosperity of the community in which he lives.

Therefore, everything should be done to benefit the state. What Is a Theory? Bastiat sees the world acting in a harmony as created and ordained by God; he even sees the use of evil and suffering as working toward its own limitation, and humanity tending toward material progress and, largely, material improvement and the more or less equal distribution of real wealth.
