This is a great book and can help you really step into the mind of Ron Paul and how he orchestrated his ideas while serving in public office. Basics of it.. You take or limit free market, it will negatively affect a group of other people. Always, no exceptions, there is always a third party that will end up paying for the decisions of those making the rules.
From tariffs and why they are shit to why social security is absolute garbage, this guy nails it. And now I can see why Ron Paul suggests this book so highly. It SHOULD be something they teach in school, but to allow people to peer under the table at what is really happening when unions and minimum wage step in, you’d probably have a group of people stepping into the voting/work force and changing it.
Democrats are purely on the other side of this book and so much so, that it’s scary. People like AOC and Ilhan Omar and other freshmen democrats have no ideas what the hell they are talking about, no do they no ANYTHING in this book, and I’m sure they were elected for that very reason. The destruction of currency and a free market will quickly bring about a world economic system which is what we are seeing now with Big C.
It’s not about health, it’s about destroying as much free market as possible.
Here is the break down on the book on Amazon:
“If there were a Nobel Prize for clear economic thinking, Mr. Hazlitt’s book would be a worthy recipient…like a surgeon’s scalpel, it cuts through…much nonsense that has been written in recent years about our economic ailments.” (J.W. Hanes, former Undersecretary of the Treasury)
Called by H.L. Mencken, “one of the few economists in history who could really write,” Henry Hazlitt achieved lasting fame for his brilliant but concise work. In it, he explains basic truths about economics and the economic fallacies responsible for unemployment, inflation, high taxes, and recession. Covering considerable ground, Hazlitt illustrates the destructive effects of taxes, rent and price controls, inflation, trade restrictions, and minimum wage laws. And, he writes about key classical liberal thinkers like John Locke, Adam Smith, Thomas Jefferson, John Stuart Mill, Alexis de Tocqueville, and Herbert Spencer.
