Biografia breu
Henry Hazlitt was a libertarian philosopher, an economist, and a journalist. He was the founding vice-president of the Foundation for Economic Education and an early editor of The Freeman magazine, an important libertarian publication. In 1946 Hazlitt wrote Economics in One Lesson, his seminal text on free market economics, which Ayn Rand referred to as doing a "...magnificent job of theoretical exposition." Hazlitt is credited with bringing his ideas and those of the so-called Austrian School to the American economics scene and his work has influenced the likes of economist Ludwig von Mises, novelist and essayist Ayn Rand, and 2008 Libertarian Party Presidential nominee and congressman, Ron Paul.

I didn't get very far in this book before I put it down in frustration because Hazlitt kept saying things like, "I'm not going to debate the benefits of low income housing (or social services, or unemployment, etc.), I'm just going to say that it's a bad idea economically." Well, that's great. Too bad we live in a world that isn't ruled by pure economics, right? We'd all be so much better off! (I don't know, maybe we would be better off, but it seems completely cold and unrealistic to me.)

Doesn't matter that it's dated, it had very easy-to-understand lessons with examples.
