This audio book is read by Jeff Riggenbach, who not only has a great voice but who is dedicated to the ideas of Hazlitt.

Called by H.L. Mencken, "one of the few economists in history who could really write," Henry Hazlitt achieved lasting fame for this brilliant but concise work. He wrote it just as he was leaving the New York Times as editorial writer. His experience there, especially with the other staff and editors, convinced him that there was a crying need for an introduction to the proper way to think about economics.

The result was what is probably the biggest selling economics book of all time.

In it, he explains basic truths about economics and the economic fallacies responsible for unemployment, inflation, high taxes, and recession. Covering considerable ground, Hazlitt illustrates the destructive effects of taxes, rent and price controls, inflation, trade restrictions and minimum wage laws.

And, he writes about key classical liberal thinkers like John Locke, Adam Smith, Thomas Jefferson, John Stuart Mill, Alexis de Tocqueville and Herbert Spencer.

"If there were a Nobel Prize for clear economic thinking, Mr. Hazlitt's book would be a worthy recipient... like a surgeon's scalpel, it cuts through... much nonsense that has been written in recent years about our economic ailments." -J.W. Hanes (former Undersecretary of the Treasury)
