Most of these articles have appeared in no other collection.The book begins with a piece written at the end of Hazlitts life, Reflections at 70. The next piece is a reflection on a book he wrote when he was a very young man, a piece on the art of thinking. So here we have the bookends to an extraordinary life of thinking and writing.The next section deals with the market economy, and here the editor has selected Hazlitts shortest pieces on a variety of topics, from private ownership to prices to income distribution. Next, he deals with the enemies of the market economy. A large section follows that covers the welfare state, foreign aid, and other issues of development economics.

The book ends with an inspiring selection about the future of the battle between capitalism and planning.While this is not a systematic treatise, it provides an outstanding overview of all of Hazlitts writings. The choices reflect Sennholzs own interests, but those are also the interests of anyone who appreciates Hazlitts contribution to communicating economic truth to all people. The collection is indeed well named!To search for Mises Institute titles, enter a keyword and LvMI (short for Ludwig von Mises Institute)- e.g., Depression LvMI
