Henry Hazlitt

“..Henry Hazlitt (November 28, 1894 – July 8, 1993) was a libertarian economist,[1] and journalist for The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Newsweek, and The American Mercury, among other publications.

In childhood his family’s finances were meagre, his father having died when Hazlitt was an infant. He attended New York City’s tuition-free City College, but left after a year and a half to become a journalist. Hazlitt started his career at The Wall Street Journal, and he wrote his first book, Thinking as a Science, at the age of 21. He also worked as a journalist for the New York Sun and as the finance and economics editor of The New York Times. He was H. L. Mencken’s chosen successor as editor of The American Mercury, an associate editor of The Nation, financial editor of The New York Evening Mail, the American correspondent for the Revue economique internationale of Belgium, wrote a signed column for Newsweek, and, with John Chamberlain, served as editor of the early free market publication The Freeman.

He is credited with bringing Austrian economics to an English-speaking audience. Along with the efforts of his friends, John Chamberlain and Max Eastman, for example, he is credited with bringing F. A. Hayek’s The Road to Serfdom to the American reading public’s attention through his review in The New York Times. Hazlitt was a prolific writer, authoring some 25 books in his lifetime.[2]

Hazlitt wrote a book titled Economics in One Lesson, and also wrote other books, among which are a major work on ethics, The Foundations of Morality, and The Failure of the New Economics, a detailed chapter-by-chapter critique of Keynes’s General Theory of Employment, Interest, and Money (of which he paraphrased a quote attributed to Samuel Johnson that he was “unable to find in it a single doctrine that is both true and original. What is original in the book is not true; and what is true is not original.”

Hazlitt was the founding vice-president of the Foundation for Economic Education and an early editor of The Freeman magazine.

From 1997 to 2002 there was an organization called The Henry Hazlitt Foundation which actively promoted libertarian networking online, especially through its website Free-Market.Net. This organization was named in honor of Hazlitt because he was known for introducing a wide range of people to libertarian ideas through his writing and for helping free-market advocates connect with each other. For example, he secured a position at New York University for the economist Ludwig von Mises, and he introduced the novelist Ayn Rand to Mises, whom she admired. It is important to note that the foundation was started after Hazlitt’s passing and had no official connection with his estate. …”
