What You Should Know About Inflation
by Henry Hazlitt
Publisher: D. Van Nostrand Company 1965
Number of pages: 158
The book's title "What You Should Know About Inflation" only hints at the extent of the issues that Hazlitt addresses. He presents the Austrian theory of money in the clearest possible terms, and contrasts it with the fallacies of government management. He takes on not only the Keynesians but also the monetarists, as well as anyone who believes that government debt accumulation and manipulation of interest rates are harmless.
