"A magnificent job of theoretical exposition."
Reseña del editor
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.

For example, you can learn why the $15/hr min wage is bad, as was the $7.50/hr before it, and the $5/hr before that, ... and is it interesting reading, not loaded with boring theories and minutia.
The lesson is clear and concise. Whenever government creates an economic policy to aid a particular group, the long term effects on all groups must be considered. In short chapters free of technical economic jargon, Hazlitt explains how short term policies aimed at helping one group or another are damaging to other groups, and sometimes, even to the people the legislation is intended to help.
Everyone will have a favorite chapter or two. My own are his dissection of how the price system works in a free market system, and also, in less than six pages, an absolute devastation of the minimum wage mandate, a concept creating increased unemployment, higher costs and higher consumer prices. This is because this sort of government fiat disavows the economic truth that employees should be paid based on their own productivity. Hazlitt also points that out in his explanation that unions do not raise wages, the actual market rates for employees is the determining factor.
Underlying all of this, although unsaid, is the concept of human interaction as applied to economics, as developed by von Mises. But the complexity of that theory is too deep for Hazlitt's purposes of instruction on how macroeconomics works. And that is perfectly fine.
This is the book for everyone who wants to understand how markets work. Every legislator and every executive of any governmental body should read it, too. That however would put too much strain on most of them,for too many in the political class are concerned with their own continuous goal, staying entrenched in office. And that in itself tears sound economic policy to shreds, every day in every way.
