Henry Hazlitt 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 important libertarian publication. In 1946 Hazlitt wrote Economics in One Lesson, his seminal text on free market economics, which Ayn Rand referred to as doing a "...magnificent job of theoretical exposition." Hazlitt is credited with bringing his ideas and those of the so-called Austrian School to the American economics scene and 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.

Still filled with basic truths

Should be required reading for every politician, with a test at the end! Shows all the fallacies that government believes in, and practices on a daily basis. Following this book will change countries for the better.

I didn't get very far in this book before I put it down in frustration because Hazlitt kept saying things like, "I'm not going to debate the benefits of low income housing (or social services, or unemployment, etc.), I'm just going to say that it's a bad idea economically." Well, that's great. Too bad we live in a world that isn't ruled by pure economics, right? We'd all be so much better off! (I don't know, maybe we would be better off, but it seems completely cold and unrealistic to me.)

Doesn't matter that it's dated, it had very easy-to-understand lessons with examples.

Aclamado por importantes economistas, traduzido para mais de 10 idiomas e com mais de um milhão de cópias vendidas, este livro é a maneira mais curta e segura de entender a economia básica. Esta nova edição conta com o prefácio de: 'Ubiratan Jorge Iorio'.
