Henry Hazlitt (1894-1993)--journalist, literary critic, economist, philosopher--was one of the most brilliant public intellectuals of our century. In his final years, he often expressed surprise that Economics in One Lesson had become his most enduring contribution.

Hazlitt also wanted to be known for his other contributions, which include the novel Time Will Run Back, a reflection on literature called The Anatomy of Criticism, Man vs. the Welfare State, several edited volumes, and countless chapters in books, articles, commentaries, reviews. He once estimated that he had written 10 million words and that his collected works would run to 150 volumes.

Hazlitt was also the most important public intellectual within the Austrian tradition of Ludwig von Mises, F.A. Hayek, and Murray N. Rothbard, all of whom he credited as primary sources in economics. He wrote in every important public forum of his day, most prominently the Nation, the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times (frequently headlining the powerful book review section), the American Mercury, Century, the Freeman, National Review, Newsweek, and many more. His every article is unfailingly poignant, provocative, and learned.

At various points in his career, he was among the most influential literary critics, editorialists, and financial writers in the country. For example, Hazlitt's review of Ludwig von Mises's first book to be translated into English made Socialism an instant classic in this country. His review of F.A. Hayek's Road to Serfdom led Reader's Digest to publish the condensed version that catapulted Hayek to fame.

Throughout his life, Hazlitt became more and more opposed to government intervention in the economy, and time and again he refused to give in to pressure from publishers and editors to change his views. He chose principle and integrity over fame and fortune, and as a consequence, he was squeezed out of a series of prestigious jobs.

On November 28, 1964, a group of friends gathered on the occasion of Hazlitt's 70th birthday. It was only weeks after Lyndon B. Johnson had been elected, and these freedom lovers were saddened at the state of the world, but at the time looked forward to the fight ahead.

Ludwig von Mises called him "the economic conscience of our country and of our nation." He was also a founder of the Mises Institute. In a time dominated by prevaricators and planners, and a nation threatened once again by statism, Hazlitt's written legacy will continue to inspire writers and scholars for many generations.
