Economics in One Lesson
This primer on economic principles brilliantly analyzes the seen and unseen consequences of political and economic actions.
With over a million copies sold since 1946, Henry Hazlitt’s Economics in One Lesson is a classic economic primer. Economics in One Lesson brilliantly analyzes the seen and unseen consequences of political and economic actions. In the words of Nobel laureate F.A. Hayek, there is “no other modern book from which the intelligent layman can learn so much about the basic truths of economics in so short a time.”
Hazlitt’s focus on market-based solutions, economic liberty, and the dangers of government intervention make Economics in One Lesson every bit as relevant and valuable today as it has been since its first publication.
“Few people since Adam Smith have managed to explain economics in terms so easy to understand and so relevant to the issues of the day that the subject leaps off the page. Henry Hazlitt was one of them, and this is the immortal classic he gifted to the world.”
