Publisher's Summary

Economics in Three Lessons:

Henry Hazlitt's 1946 book Economics in One Lesson sold more than a million copies. It is perhaps the best selling economics book of all time. In this volume, Hunter Lewis, a Hazlitt admirer and student, provides a sequel and update. 

The central lesson of Hazlitt's seminal work is that economic thought and policy must consider all the consequences of an action, not just the immediate or most visible ones. Hazlitt is right that this is the kernel of all good economics. Lewis covers this theme and also introduces two more lessons: how a free and uncontrolled price system creates prosperity and how a controlled or manipulated price system creates only crony capitalist corruption and, ultimately, poverty and economic failure. 

The great merit of this volume is its simplicity. Anyone can listen to it and understand it. It is an ideal introduction to economics. 

One Hundred Economic Laws:

In this groundbreaking volume, Lewis does what no one has attempted to do, at least not for many decades: It collects in one place some of the most important laws of economics. 

Everyone understands the importance of understanding the laws of physics and other natural sciences. Are there also laws of economics? Can understanding them also make our lives better? This volume answers with a resounding "Yes" to both questions. 

We need the laws of economics to help guide our choices and actions in a very uncertain world. We also need them to protect us from the “thinkers for hire” who, paid by special economic interests, try to persuade us to ignore reality. 

This short audiobook is also a complete course in economics. Unlike the dry-as-dust and often irrelevant textbooks forced on high school and college students, it is authored in a lively and even sparkling style.

Excellent & Accessible!

Hunter Lewis has written a wonderfully easy to understand economic treatise. Though the subject can be complicated, he clearly exerted effort to make it accessible to "the lay reader". Nevertheless, the more advanced student of economics, will find that Mr. Lewis is accurate and sound in his reasoning.

I want to also applaud Bruce Lorie for doing a terrific job reading the text!
