The best book ever written that demolishes Keynes idiotic theories with entertaining and subtle wit. Truly enjoyable. A must read for anyone that has been imbued with keynes' fallacies at school or in his/her university studies.

5.0 su 5 stelle Is Keynesian economics the real voodoo economics? 18 maggio 2015
Di Scott A. Prost-domasky - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
After reading this book and understanding (somewhat) the points Hazlitt makes in his savage takedown of what is called Keynesian economics, I have no idea why Keynesian economics survived to this day. Of course economists can and do often disagree as to the effects of various measures, and of course Hazlitt has quite a few of those disagreements with Keynes. What is devastating about this book and its contents is the baring of contradictions both in the Keynesian theories themselves and in Keynes's contradictions within his own writings. Mainly attacking Keynes seminal work from 1936 (the General Theory....) but also scrutinizing previous Keynes writings, Hazlitt points out many instances where Keynes comes up with a phrase, and uses the phrase in contradictory manners, even in the same publication! Hazlitt guesses that not even Keynes knows what he is thinking. After reading this book, I wonder why Keynes is considered a great economist instead of an out and out fraud. If his seminal 1936 work had been 'peer reviewed', I would have hoped that reviewers would have noticed the obvious contradictions and would have rejected the seeming nonsense Keynes wrote in 1936. What I can't understand is given the obvious contradictions Hazlitt points out, why is Keynesian economics still being studied at universities worldwide as a legitimate economics theory? Somebody please clue me in here-this book was written in the 1950s, long enough ago for every economist to know of Hazlitt's work. What happened, why is Keynes considered a giant among economists? Has Hazlitt's work been discredited?

5.0 su 5 stelle Pure logic's manifesto 22 ottobre 2016
Di Evang A. Palmos - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
A marvelous example of pure logic,this book undermines Keynes's "General theory" arguments page by page. In the end what remains of it,is the adaptation of inflation and cheap money policy,as a remedy for unemployment. Clearly a preposterous policy. Hazlitt provides also a number of arguments in favor of the Austrian school of economics and provides interesting bibliography for further reading. Overall,an exceptional book!

5.0 su 5 stelle Great book! Just make sure you know what you are buying. 7 gennaio 2014
Di David - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I find Hazlitt to be fairly underrated and I believe that this book is often overshadowed by "economics in one lesson." This is a great book to read right AFTER you've read the General Theory. But for those of you are simply looking for a general criticism of Keynesian economics or a comparison of theory I'm not so sure this is exactly what you are looking for - although it is good for that too. This is more of a criticism of Keynes book itself.
Certainly worth the money! it is difficult to go wrong with Hazlitt.

5.0 su 5 stelle A great deconstruction of the Keynesian fallacies 27 novembre 2009
Di William E. Fleischmann - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Henry Hazlitt (author of the excellent Economics in One Lesson) deconstructs John Maynard Keynes' magnum opus, The General Theory, and finds it wanting. He digs through the poor writing, bald assertions, self-contradictions and circular reasoning and exposes the underlying fallacies that make up the entirety of Keynes' supposedly "new" theories. And he did so at a time when the Keynesian School was almost unopposed in conventional economics (rather than steadily losing ground to both the Chicagoans and Austrians as is the case today). While one may consider the work dated as a result, it still has contemporary value so long as prominent Keynesian economists such as Paul Krugman continue to be taken seriously not so much by economists as by those making public policy decisions.

Perhaps Hazlitt's most important contribution is the rehabilitation of Say's Law (which, despite Keynes' claims to the contrary, was never so much as dented) and the corresponding rehabilitation of the concept (actually conceded by Keynes at the outset - he admitted embarrassment about this confusion on his part in his "Treatise on Money" and then adopts the same fallacy in "The General Theory") that savings = investment (S=I). This is true in all cases where the market is permitted to approach equilibrium, even, as in the example cited in the book, when a bank issues a new loan, so long as the market is permitted to return to an equilibrium reserve percentage. This is only altered by the special case of a permanent (that is, extra-market) change in the supply of money.

The fallacy of Keynes' position, as clearly demonstrated by Hazlitt, is one that requires no calculus at all to comprehend. At this point, Hazlitt's admonitions regarding "mathematical economists" are particularly valid. There is no difference between the classical assertion that, in a market permitted to seek equilibrium, the real wage is equal to the marginal productivity of labor - expressed as w/p=mpl - and Keynes' attempt to qualify it with the sum of the marginal propensity to consume and the marginal propensity to invest - expressed as w/p=mpl/(mpc+mpi). This is because, as Hazlitt makes clear to the unbiased reader, Keynes' attempt to distinguish between savings and investment (or between savings specifically invested in "investment goods") is completely invalid. "Savings" can be alternatively stated as "non-consumption" and it remains savings (and investment) if it is placed in a bank or simply invested in future consumption by being stuffed into a mattress.

There is no such thing as "dead capital". Thus, by definition, mpc+mpi=1 and it takes no calculus to conclude that w/p=mpl means the same thing as w/p=(mpl)/1. Once this point is made clear, delving into the mathematical gyrations in chapters 19-21 and related appendix is a waste of time, because they proceed from the clearly false assumptions that mpi (excluding held savings) is a valid distinction from mps, or that mpc+mps can be anything but one. Nearly all of the defenses of Keynesian economics begin and end with the assumption that there is some legitimate reason why cash reserves (investment in future consumption) are not really investment. Without this distinction, all discussion of the "gap" and related multiplier analysis is invalid, by definition (which, of course, is the case). Even if the cash is set afire (certainly another special case), it can be regarded as consumption (literally) AND a reduction, albeit miniscule, in the total supply of money.

The "special case" is not an economy permitted to function without interference - in which Say's Law holds true - but where the deliberate and permanent alteration of the money supply is undertaken by government in precisely the way Keynes endorses. In fact, Keynes simply embraces long discredited inflationary theories involving governmental expenditure as an economic stimulus, primarily (as has led to such crises as the Great Depression and the current economic crisis) the manipulation of interest rates by the state. In fact, as Hazlitt points out, Keynes praises governmental involvement in the economy, particularly with regard to maintenance of national wealth and the achievement of full employment via interest rate manipulation, repeatedly in his work. It is hard to find an economist this side of Karl Marx that is so completely at odds with the views of Adam Smith who roundly criticized such action by the mercantilists and advocated "perfect liberty" in the complete absence of such intervention.

Hazlitt concludes, as have an increasing percentage of economists because it is consistent with the real world evidence, that the primary cause of involuntary unemployment is a wage rate in excess of the equilibrium rate. It cannot be solved by artificial changes in the supply of capital (which obviously cannot be made "abundant" by magic or government fiat) that merely create other economic distortions.

Overall, Hazlitt's deconstruction of Keynes' theories is thorough, explicit and logically based and criticism of his mathematical abilities (as demonstrated above) are completely without merit. While not the best source of positive theories of money, credit and interest (for that see the works of Mises, Hayek and Rothbard many of which are available online), it achieves its purpose - a sequential evaluation of the Keynesian theories - brilliantly.

4.0 su 5 stelle The False Precision Fallacy 27 dicembre 2016
Di Pretend Person - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
It is important to understand that this book is a systemic critique of the 1936 work by John Maynard Keynes, ‘The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money’ (The "New Economics") from the perceptive of the Austrian School of Economics, the principal proponents of which were Carl Menger (1840 – 1921), Eugen Bohm von Bawerk (1851 – 1914), Ludwig von Mises (1881 – 1973) and F.A. Hayek (1899 – 1992). The Austrian School of Economics is a more rigorous restatement of the earlier Scholastic-French thinking about economics, the principle proponents of which were Jean-Bariste Say (1767 - 1832) of Say’s Law fame and Frederic Bastiat (1801 - 1850), of Broken Window Fallacy fame.

This book proceeds by repeating varies key passages from the ‘General Theory’ and then offering a critiquing of each passage from an Austrian perspective. Some readers may find this systemic, passage by passage, treatment somewhat tedious. However, this book was an important contribution to the philosophical debate about the possibility of economics itself and then to its reality and nature.

The Austrian tradition of economic thinking is more conceptual and holistic in viewing economics as inseparable from society, culture and politics; it is less mathematical than Keynesian thought which views economics as a specialized science. From a Keynesian perspective, the Austrian School lacks precision. From an Austrian perspective, the Keynesian school of thought over emphasis models, data and statistics. Markets are a part of the complex array of human relationships that permeate the economy with profound social, cultural and political implications that cannot be reduced to equations, databases and spreadsheet, all of which cannot help but be incomplete. An economic transaction is just one example of a human relationship. From a Keynesian perspective, Austrian economics does not offer actionable policy options to address the shortcomings found in markets. Not all markets are the same and there should not necessarily be a market for every conceivable good or service, nor is the market solution necessarily the best solution for every conceivable manifestation of human action and relationships. From a Keynesian perspective, markets do not always provide the optimal societal solution and are in need of correction. However, the Austrians will point out that we proceed to fool ourselves into believing that we achieve more precision than is possible from this new science.

I think the best approach is a balance approach. Traditional Keynesian economic thinking is too quick to prescribe actionable policy remedies for perceived market failures whereas the Austrian School puts too much faith in markets to deliver the optimal societal and cultural, not just economically efficient, solutions to the fundamental human problem of limited resources. Ultimately, Mr. Hazlitt is asking us to think critically and rigorously to get beyond the shallow depth of our own self-interest and outside the bounds of our narrow personal advantage.
