About the Course
Forget Ronald Reagan; Henry Hazlitt was the true “great communicator.” Especially in his classic work Economics in One Lesson, Hazlitt brings to bear his prodigious writing talents, honed through his long career as a journalist, to make the case for the free market to the lay reader.
Ludwig von Mises was a master theorist who made hugely important contributions to economic science. Yet, he too was a master communicator. Especially in his popular essays and in his speeches, he explained the wondrously beneficial workings of the market economy with clarity and force.
Learn how to “see the unseen” as Professor David Gordon teaches you how to apply logic and fundamental axioms to reason through economic problems. Learn to catch common economic fallacies, see the underlying order in the market economy, and deduce the unintended consequences of government intervention.
