Considered among the leading economic thinkers of the "Austrian School," Henry Hazlitt was a 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. Economics in One Lesson was praised upon publication, and has since sold over one million copies. "It is a brilliant performance. It says precisely the things which need most saying and says them with a rare courage and integrity" (F.A. Hayek). "A brilliant and pithy work first published in 1946, at a time of rampant statism at home and abroad, it taught millions the bad consequences of putting government in charge of economic life. College students across America and the world still use it and learn from it. It may be the most popular economics text ever written" (The Von Mises Institute).
