Economics in Three Lessons

& One Hundred Economic Laws

by Hunter Lewis

Two works in one volume:

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 book, Hunter Lewis, a Hazlitt admirer and student, provides a sequel and update.

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

One Hundred Economic Laws

In this groundbreaking work, Lewis does what no one has attempted to do. It collects in one place some of the most important laws of economics.

Everyone understands the importance of the laws of physics. Are there also laws of economics? Can understanding them also make our lives better? Lewis answers with a resounding yes.

This short work is also a complete course in economics written in a lively style.
