5.0 out of 5 stars Methodical destruction of Keynes, October 3, 2011
This review is from: The Failure of the New Economics (Paperback)
I don't get a lot of pleasure out of reading about disasters, but Hazlitt simply destroys Keynes' thought process and ideas. It's interesting, is it better to read the "General Theory" first or read this book? I believe reading this book first will make reading the "General Theory" much more rewarding. Although, my guess would be Hazlitt will recommend that you don't even waste a moment of time reading Keynes' work. Hazlitt makes so many incredible strikes to the work, it's hard to find anything worth taking from Keynes. This book is most interesting in how society labels books as "classics" yet they don't seem to makes any sense. In summary, if you are a student of Keynes, you will be surprised and probably upset at this book. If you are a student of neoclassical economics, you will enjoy this book.
