What you should know about inflation

by Henry Hazlitt

A noted economist exposes the truth behind our shrinking dollars... What precisely is inflation? What is its cause? Its cure? How long will it last? Is there any way you can take advantage of inflation? If not, how can you protect yourself against further erosion in the value of your savings? Henry Hazlitt gives his answers to these questions and many more in this clear, readable book. He exposes the fallacies by which some people have come to justify inflation, and he discusses the role of governments in creating the very inflation that they claim to be combatting. For this paper-bound edition Mr. Hazlitt has added new statistics and information, and in a new preface he comments on the current economic situation. What You Should Know About Inflation is required reading for anyone who wants to know why his money is worth less and what he can do about it. "A keen economic mind...provides an incisive primer on the subject."--THE WALL STREET JOURNAL "This concise little book explains the elements of the subject in simplest terms, and takes the mystery out of the technical jargon in which it is too often buried. Henry Hazlitt answers...questions with logic and lucidity."--INVESTMENT DEALER'S DIGEST… (more)

An interesting book... if you are interested in inflation.(!) A little bit dated, but very clear in describing what inflation actually is, and how it arises. Debunks the Keynsian ideas and describes how inflation - even moderate inflation is really a pernicious distorting tax. I think it's really a collection of essays, so doesn't read quite as well as it could. Read Henry Hazlitt's other book Economics in One Lesson which is EXCELLENT. ( )
