    Henry Hazlitt (1894-1993), was a libertarian philosopher, an economist, and a journalist. He was the founding vice-president of the Foundation for Economic Education and an early editor ofThe Freeman magazine, an important libertarian publication. Hazlitt wrote Economics in One Lesson, his seminal text on free market economics, in 1946, bringing his ideas and those of the so-called Austrian School to the American scene. His work has influenced the likes of economist Ludwig von Mises, novelist and essayist Ayn Rand, and 2008 Libertarian Party Presidential nominee and congressman, Ron Paul. Hazlitt has been cited as one of the most influential literary critics and economic writers of his time.
    A million copy seller, Henry Hazlitt’s Economics in One Lesson is a classic economic primer. But it is also much more, having become a fundamental influence on modern “libertarian” economics of the type espoused by Ron Paul and others.

    Considered among the leading economic thinkers of the “Austrian School,” which includes Carl Menger, Ludwig von Mises, Friedrich (F.A.) Hayek, and others, Henry Hazlitt (1894-1993), was a libertarian philosopher, an economist, and a journalist. He was the founding vice-president of the Foundation for Economic Education and an early editor of The Freeman magazine, an influential libertarian publication. Hazlitt wrote Economics in One Lesson, his seminal work, in 1946. Concise and instructive, it is also deceptively prescient and far-reaching in its efforts to dissemble economic fallacies that are so prevalent they have almost become a new orthodoxy.

    Many current economic commentators across the political spectrum have credited Hazlitt with foreseeing the collapse of the global economy which occurred more than 50 years after the initial publication ofEconomics in One Lesson. Hazlitt’s focus on non-governmental solutions, strong — and strongly reasoned — anti-deficit position, and general emphasis on free markets, economic liberty of individuals, and the dangers of government intervention makeEconomics in One Lesson, every bit as relevant and valuable today as it has been since publication.

    • Great first book for new future economist.

      The one lesson everyeconomist should learn is to look at the whole picture. We must not look only at direct effect of action but the inderect effect which we may not see. Great book. Fast read. Easy to comprehend. Big letters.

    • Excellent and more ...

      Economics In One Lesson should be required reading for every politician as well as every thinking voter and American citizen. Hazlitt explains everything in a most lucid manner which is a pleasure to read. In addition I would recommend Ayn Rand's works beginning with Atlas Shrugged. Also enlightening is The Creature From Jekyll Island by G. Edward Griffin about the origins of the Federal Reserve and the history of central banking in American history up to this day. Tom Woods books Meltdown and Nullification are eye opening as is Ron Paul's The Revolution: A Manifesto and End The Fed. Many excellent articles at xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx high school and college or university students will find xxxxxxx worthwhile and a source of optimism and hope.
