FEE Is Looking for the Next Hazlitt

Henry Hazlitt, by his own estimate, wrote ten million words throughout his career—published in major newspapers, magazines, and books. His writings spread sound economics and the ideas of liberty to millions of people. Hazlitt converted more readers to the free-market perspective than perhaps any writer in the 20th century.

What about our own times? The cause of economic freedom desperately needs Hazlitt-level communicators for the digital age, and the Foundation for Economic Education is determined to discover and train them.

Could we be looking for you?

FEE’s new Henry Hazlitt Project for Educational Journalism is recruiting ambitious young writers who are looking to launch their careers promoting economic literacy and free markets as journalists, commentators, and authors.

Apply for the upcoming fall/winter cohort before August 26, 2022 below.
