The Joy of Hazlitt

November 2, 2005 by


Henry Hazlitt is the author of the book Economics in One Lesson. This T-shirt celebrates his book and overall contribution to economics. After all, this man might have taught more people the fundamentals of economic thinking than anyone else in a half century.

This special edition T-shirt is gold (Hazlitt championed the gold standard) and includes printing on the reverse side, with the One Lesson that Hazlitt taught: “The art of economics consists in looking not merely at the immediate but at the longer effects of any act or policy; it consists in tracing the consequences of that policy not merely for one group but for all groups.”

When are Thomas Woods and Lew Rockwell getting their own shirts?

“When are Thomas Woods and Lew Rockwell getting their own shirts?”

Jon, what would you suggest for their mottos?

Thomas Woods would likely be something like “Politically Incorrect” or “History is PC”, while Lew Rockwell would likely be “Speaking of Liberty”

I think the following quote sums up the reason why we wear the t-shirts in the first place:

“The venerable dead are waiting in my library to entertain me and relieve me from the nonsense of surviving mortals.” ~ Samuel Davies

I wouldn’t want to wear a t-shirt with a living person’s picture on it. I hope Lew lives another 50 years and writes 50 more books, so I don’t think I’ll ever wear his t-shirt – if it’s made.

By the way, you can get a t-shirt with the above quote on it at aPuritansMind.com. Click on Reformed T-shirts.
