As part of The Intellectual Portrait Series, political philosopher and economist Anthony de Jasay converses with Dr. Hartmut Kliemt, as this presentation sets back to the fears and job-seeking obstacles that forced him to flee his country Hungary, and to the later years when he earned a degree in economics. His understanding of this science has allowed him to write several books regarding related topics, such as power, politics, government, and individuals, among others, while stating that economics teaches people to think and to have an alertness of mind.

De Jasay presents his view on social contracts, referring to it as the opium of the people, and explains how individuals fall into the trap of believing in the need and voluntary acceptance of the state's intervention to rule over them. The dialogue furthers on his accumulation of experiences and knowledge, as they discuss his academic works and his analysis on the idea of limited and minimal government, making evident his conviction in balance of power, spontaneous enforcement and free will.

Selected Quotes from Anthony de Jasay


"I had the arrogance to attack his god."

"I didn't believe in any macroeconomics that didn't start off with micro."

"What economics does for you, it teaches you to think. But its subject matter is of very little importance."

"The state can starve you if it has sufficient power over jobs."

"When all these private fortresses are demolished, then you are ultimately delivered to the state."

"My governing idea is that people intend to stay in power."

"If people buy this line that what they are really doing is voluntarily accepting the state, then of course it's... easy for the state to rule over them."

"Show me a constitution that effectively limits the ability of the state to preempt resources."

"When you have collective choice and individual choice side by side, it is within the power of collective choice to preempt individual choice, but never vice versa."

"There is very little in the world that is anonymous. Everything gets known."

"There's always more to be gained in total by performing contracts than by defaulting on them."

"We are not in pursuit of perfection…We want real societies, not abstract ideals."

"Let's not imagine that nobody falls through the cracks under state provision."

"The instant we pay taxes, we create the platform for the free-rider."
