Economics In One Lesson


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

With over a million copies sold, Economics in One Lesson is an essential guide to the basics of economic theory. A fundamental influence on modern libertarianism, Hazlitt defends capitalism and the free market from economic myths that persist to this day. Considered among the leading economic thinkers of the “Austrian School,” which includes Carl Menger, Ludwig von Mises, Friedrich (F.A.) Hayek, and others, Henry Hazlitt (1894-1993), 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 influential libertarian publication. Hazlitt wrote Economics in One Lesson, his seminal work, in 1946. Concise and instructive, it is also deceptively prescient and far-reaching in its efforts to dissemble economic fallacies that are so prevalent they have almost become a new orthodoxy. Economic commentators across the political spectrum have credited Hazlitt with foreseeing the collapse of the global economy which occurred more than 50 years after the initial publication of Economics in One Lesson. Hazlitt’s focus on non-governmental solutions, strong — and strongly reasoned — anti-deficit position, and general emphasis on free markets, economic liberty of individuals, and the dangers of government intervention make Economics in One Lesson every bit as relevant and valuable today as it has been since publication.

Economics In Two Lessons


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Since 1946, Henry Hazlitt's bestselling Economics in One Lesson has popularized the belief that economics can be boiled down to one simple lesson: market prices represent the true cost of everything. But one-lesson economics tells only half the story. It can explain why markets often work so well, but it can't explain why they often fail so badly--or what we should do when they stumble. As Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Samuelson quipped, "When someone preaches 'Economics in one lesson, ' I advise: Go back for the second lesson." In Economics in Two Lessons, John Quiggin teaches both lessons, offering a masterful introduction to the key ideas behind the successes--and failures--of free markets. Economics in Two Lessons explains why market prices often fail to reflect the full cost of our choices to society as a whole. For example, every time we drive a car, fly in a plane, or flick a light switch, we contribute to global warming. But, in the absence of a price on carbon emissions, the costs of our actions are borne by everyone else. In such cases, government action is needed to achieve better outcomes. Two-lesson economics means giving up the dogmatism of laissez-faire as well as the reflexive assumption that any economic problem can be solved by government action, since the right answer often involves a mixture of market forces and government policy. But the payoff is huge: understanding how markets actually work--and what to do when they don't. Brilliantly accessible, Economics in Two Lessons unlocks the essential issues at the heart of any economic question.

"Government intervention in the institutions of money and banking sowed the seeds of the worldwide asset bubble in the early and mid-2000s, which could only result in a giant crash according to this line of thought. Once the crash had occurred, the recession was prolonged by yet more government intervention in the form of massive deficits, expansion of unemployment payments, and ever more regulations on businesses in the private sector. Only by returning to a genuinely free market, based on the classical liberal notions of private property, civil liberties, and peace among nations, can we return to the prosperity and steady improvement of living conditions that we had come to take for granted. Those who endorse the Austrian analysis believe it is crucial to spread this message, not just to academics, but to the intelligent layperson as well. That is the primary function of the present volume. It provides an introduction and an invitation to the most important work of arguably the most important Austrian economist"--

The Art And Practice Of Economics Research


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

ïIn this book, Simon Bowmaker offers a remarkable collection of conversations with leading economists about research in economics. He has selected a broad sample of the great economists of our time, including people whose perspectives span most of the major subdivisions of economics research, from micro to macro, from theoretical to empirical, from rationalist to behavioral.Í _ From the foreword by Roger B. Myerson, University of Chicago, US and 2007 Nobel Laureate in Economics ïThe Art and Practice of Economics Research is the book I wish I had when I was ñgrowing upî as an economist. For anyone who is or wants to be an economic researcher, or anyone just interested in how economics ñworksî, this is a terrific and inspirational resource.Í _ David K. Levine, Washington University in St. Louis, US ïIt is hard to imagine an economist in the world who would not enjoy this book. It is fascinating, gripping, and full of the wisdom imparted by age and by scholarly lifeÍs ups and downs.Í _ Andrew J. Oswald, University of Warwick, UK ïAlthough each has followed his or her own road, these scholars share a passion for economics and a commitment to the research enterprise. The best economists lie sleepless, gripped by their questions.Í _ Joshua Angrist, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, US ïThis is a wonderful book of interviews with some of the most respected economists in the world. It is full of insights into academic life, and clearly conveys the joy of doing economics research.Í _ Jon Levin, Stanford University, US ïThe relaxed frame of the interviews gives interested parties exciting insights into the thoughts and concerns of leading economists and might well inspire some of the best young minds to continue with economics in their later lives.Í _ Ernst Fehr, University of Zurich, Switzerland The Art and Practice of Economics Research provides an in-depth look into the research methods of leading economists from across the United States and Europe. This innovative volume contains 25 interviews with practicing economists, presenting insightful personal accounts into an often-misunderstood field. Contributors to this volume were asked to reflect on their own experience in economics research, including their methods of working, the process of scientific discovery and knowledge creation, and the challenges of successfully disseminating their work. The unique and compelling interview format showcases each contributorÍs personal connection to his or her work, presenting a view of current economics research that is technical, comprehensive, and refreshingly human. Both students and current scholars in economics will find much to admire in this bookÍs window into the inner workings of some of the brightest and best-known minds in the field. This volume would also make a great companion to the authorÍs 2010 book, The Heart of Teaching Economics, which showcases the personal experiences of teachers and professors of economics.
