Economics in One Lesson by Henry Hazlitt


When you understand the principles of economics, you can see the world more clearly. There is no book better than Henry Hazlitt’s Economics in One Lesson for learning those economic principles.

In the words of F.A. Hayek, there is "no other modern book from which the intelligent layman can learn so much about the basic truths of economics in so short a time."
