The Failure of the New Economics by Henry Hazlitt

Henry Hazlitt did the seemingly impossible, something that was and is a magnificent service to all people everywhere. He wrote a line-by-line commentary and refutation of one of the most destructive, fallacious, and convoluted books of the century. The target here is John Maynard Keynes's General Theory, the book that appeared in 1936 and swept all before it.

Far from being a dull read, this book has all the brightness and clarity we've come to expect from Hazlitt. He is a dazzling writer, and one can't but thrill to see him in the ring with the giant Keynes. By the time he delivers the knockout punch--taking on Keynes's suggestion that we nationalize investment--there is nothing left of his opponent.

Narrated by Josiah Schmidt.
