Professor Walter Block joins the Human Action Podcast for a fantastic in-depth discussion of Henry Hazlitt and his work. Dr. Block has great insights into Hazlitt's work on inflation, economic fallacies, ethics and utilitarianism, and more, plus great anecdotes about Hazlitt, Mises, and Rand. Economics in One Lesson may be the most important economics book ever written for lay readers, and the Mises Institute will release a new edition of the book later this fall—available free to tens of thousands of students across the world. There is still time to be listed as a patron in the book by donating here!

Articles discussed:

"The Task Confronting Libertarians"

"The Case for the Minimal State" (PDF), page 103
