Henry Hazlitt and Economic Freedom


Henry Hazlitt is the author of the most widely read economics textbook ever, Economics in One Lesson, and is arguably the most important public intellectual in the Mises-Hayek tradition, especially given his prolific contributions in the popular press. This conference intends to broaden our examination of Hazlitt’s work in economics and moral philosophy, with a particular emphasis on the role of economic freedom.
