Now that few people read anymore (due to more pressing activities such as watching American Idol and having to work longer hours to earn enough money to keep up with the “Federal” Reserve-created inflation), it’s getting harder and harder to convince people to take the few hours needed to read Henry Hazlitt’s Economics in One Lesson. Fortunately, there is now a less time-consuming way--but no less informative--for people to learn basic economics.
