With over a million copies sold, Economics in One Lesson is an essential guide to the basics of economic theory. A fundamental influence on modern libertarianism, Hazlitt defends capitalism and the free market from economic myths that persist to this day. 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. 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 of Economics 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 make Economics in One Lesson every bit as relevant and valuable today as it has been since publication.

BUSY HUMAN'S SALES PITCHYou are a busy human. You don't have time to read piles of books, think about the best way to understand them, and then write (possibly) the most awesome notes on the planet. Luckily for you, I don't really have much going on in my life, so here we are.In this volume, I provide you, my dear reader, with a simple and entertaining summary of a fine work, Economics in One Lesson by Henry Hazlitt, which serves as a great introduction to basic economics, and covers topics such as supply and demand, inflation, taxes, subsidies, and how governmental decisions affect the economy and your wallet. This is not any old summary. I've tried hard to summarize this book in a very understandable manner, and I've added just enough humor to keep you entertained throughout the journey. Please note that this summary is for educational aid and entertainment purposes only (I sincerely hope that all of the content is totally true, but I'm mostly just trying to summarize a book that somebody else wrote; and just in case that you care, I sometimes disagree a teeny bit with the author, but I think that it's a great book).Thanks for reading, you busy human!.Shmuel Breban

Since 1946, Henry Hazlitt's bestselling Economics in One Lesson has popularized the belief that economics can be boiled down to one simple lesson: market prices represent the true cost of everything. But one-lesson economics tells only half the story. It can explain why markets often work so well, but it can't explain why they often fail so badly--or what we should do when they stumble. As Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Samuelson quipped, "When someone preaches 'Economics in one lesson, ' I advise: Go back for the second lesson." In Economics in Two Lessons, John Quiggin teaches both lessons, offering a masterful introduction to the key ideas behind the successes--and failures--of free markets. Economics in Two Lessons explains why market prices often fail to reflect the full cost of our choices to society as a whole. For example, every time we drive a car, fly in a plane, or flick a light switch, we contribute to global warming. But, in the absence of a price on carbon emissions, the costs of our actions are borne by everyone else. In such cases, government action is needed to achieve better outcomes. Two-lesson economics means giving up the dogmatism of laissez-faire as well as the reflexive assumption that any economic problem can be solved by government action, since the right answer often involves a mixture of market forces and government policy. But the payoff is huge: understanding how markets actually work--and what to do when they don't. Brilliantly accessible, Economics in Two Lessons unlocks the essential issues at the heart of any economic question.

A noted economist exposes the truth behind our shrinking dollars... What precisely is inflation? What is its cause? Its cure? How long will it last? Is there any way you can take advantage of inflation? If not, how can you protect yourself against further erosion in the value of your savings? Henry Hazlitt gives his answers to these questions and many more in this clear, readable book. He exposes the fallacies by which some people have come to justify inflation, and he discusses the role of governments in creating the very inflation that they claim to be combatting. For this paper-bound edition Mr. Hazlitt has added new statistics and information, and in a new preface he comments on the current economic situation. What You Should Know About Inflation is required reading for anyone who wants to know why his money is worth less and what he can do about it. “A keen economic mind...provides an incisive primer on the subject.”—THE WALL STREET JOURNAL “This concise little book explains the elements of the subject in simplest terms, and takes the mystery out of the technical jargon in which it is too often buried. Henry Hazlitt answers...questions with logic and lucidity.”—INVESTMENT DEALER’S DIGEST

In this fun romp through the western Milky Way, Violet Self teaches economic concepts with her trusty Manual at several moon-based re-education camps. But when the Earth is closed during a pandemic, she befriends a few of her former Earthling campers forced to stay on Violet's home moon. Together they attempt to solve its vicious hyperinflation, while mitigating the physical effects of an economic vaccine that's being secretly dosed out. Sir Riordan Vastly, the Manual's overbearing author, and his constantly rhyming wife join Violet and her cat (Fred) in tracking down the real cause of the moon's inflationary troubles, while the girls from Earth learn valuable economic lessons about the true nature of both capitalism and socialism. The playful scifi story melds Douglas Adams (Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy) with Henry Hazlitt (Economics in One Lesson) in an effort to impart economic truths in a clever, entertaining way.

The Law

The Law is an 1850 book by Frédéric Bastiat. It was written at Mugron two years after the third French Revolution and a few months before his death of tuberculosis at age 49. The essay was influenced by John Locke's Second Treatise on Government and in turn influenced Henry Hazlitt's Economics in One Lesson. It is the work for which Bastiat is most famous along with The candlemaker's petition and the Parable of the broken window. In The Law, Bastiat says "each of us has a natural right - from God - to defend his person, his liberty, and his property." The State is a "substitution of a common force for individual forces" to defend this right. The law becomes perverted when it is used to violate the rights of the individual, when it punishes one's right to defend himself against a collective effort of others to legislatively enact laws which basically have the same effect of plundering. Justice has precise limits but philanthropy is limitless and government can grow endlessly when that becomes its function. The resulting statism is "based on this triple hypothesis: the total inertness of mankind, the omnipotence of the law, and the infallibility of the legislator." The relationship between the public and the legislator becomes "like the clay to the potter." Bastiat says, "I do not dispute their right to invent social combinations, to advertise them, to advocate them, and to try them upon themselves, at their own expense and risk. But I do dispute their right to impose these plans upon us by law - by force - and to compel us to pay for them with our taxes." Claude-Frédéric Bastiat (1801-1850) was a French economist and writer who was a prominent member of the French Liberal School. Bastiat developed the economic concept of opportunity cost and introduced the parable of the broken window. He was also a Freemason and member of the French National Assembly. As an advocate of classical economics and the economics of Adam Smith, his views favored a free market and influenced the Austrian School.
