Author of the most popular economics book ever written.
What book taught American supporters of free markets economics? Economics in One Lesson by Henry Hazlitt (1894–1993). 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.
