When to install baseboard molding ?

We recently finished our basement and planning to put carpet on the floor.
My question is :
should the baseboard molding be put on the walls before carpeting or should it be put after carpeting or it doesnt matter the order in which baseboard molding and carpeting are installed ?
I have got conflicting info from couple of sources and am confused now.
help is greatly appreciated.

Install it before, hold it 1/2" off the floor so that the carpet tucks under it.
