Looking at public policy debates in conventional terms—in terms of conflict between the left and the right—has grown increasingly cumbersome in an era where conservatives call themselves revolutionaries and liberals strike positively Burkean poses when it comes to reforming Social Security or Medicare. Through an examination of the libertarian worldview, once on the margins of American politics but now in the mainstream, William E. Hudson shows how it has attracted powerful political supporters and is promoted by a network of institutions and policy advocates dedicated to its ideals. The Libertarian Illusion offers a well researched, balanced, and systematic critique of libertarian policy proposals on both the conservative (taxation and fiscal policy, health care, social security, and business regulation) and liberal (abortion, stem cell research, and euthanasia) sides of the traditional political spectrum. Always engaging and provocative, Hudson hones in on the fundamental value differences that drive political debate, arguing that a more communitarian outlook offers solutions more likely to solve America’s policy problems.

In kaum einem Bereich spuken so viele Irrtümer herum wie in der Ökonomie. Zudem sind sie so weit verbreitet, dass sie als gültige Lehrmeinung angesehen werden. Themen wie staatliche Zinsmanipulation, Sparen, Inflation, Mindestlöhne oder Branchenrettung, wie die der Banken, sind aktueller und missverstandener denn je. Deshalb ist es wichtig zu wissen, was wirklich hinter den Begriffen steckt, wie sie zusammenwirken und welche praktischen Folgen (staatliche) Eingriffe haben. Niemand könnte ein Verständnis wirtschaftlicher Grundlagen besser vermitteln als Henry Hazlitt. Als einer der ganz Großen der Österreichischen Schule wird er in einem Atemzug mit Mises, Hayek und Rothbard genannt. Seine Begabung für elegante, populäre Darstellungen wirtschaftlicher Zusammenhänge haben dieses Buch entstehen lassen. In 24 kurzweiligen Kapiteln vermittelt er sein umfassendes Wissen, von Steuern über die Idee der Vollbeschäftigung bis zu Preisen und Inflation. Die 24 wichtigsten Regeln der Wirtschaft, ein Klassiker der Ökonomie jetzt auf Deutsch und heute noch so aktuell wie zur Erstveröffentlichung 1946.
