Summary Economics In One Lesson By Henry Hazlitt


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

BUSY HUMAN'S SALES PITCHYou are a busy human. You don't have time to read piles of books, think about the best way to understand them, and then write (possibly) the most awesome notes on the planet. Luckily for you, I don't really have much going on in my life, so here we are.In this volume, I provide you, my dear reader, with a simple and entertaining summary of a fine work, Economics in One Lesson by Henry Hazlitt, which serves as a great introduction to basic economics, and covers topics such as supply and demand, inflation, taxes, subsidies, and how governmental decisions affect the economy and your wallet. This is not any old summary. I've tried hard to summarize this book in a very understandable manner, and I've added just enough humor to keep you entertained throughout the journey. Please note that this summary is for educational aid and entertainment purposes only (I sincerely hope that all of the content is totally true, but I'm mostly just trying to summarize a book that somebody else wrote; and just in case that you care, I sometimes disagree a teeny bit with the author, but I think that it's a great book).Thanks for reading, you busy human!.Shmuel Breban

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.
