What I Am Having Shipped to Joe Weisenthal

Following this Twitter exchange:

I just ordered this poster

and this book

and am having them shipped to Weisenthal.

Hazlitt's book is a total page by page demolition of The General Theory by John Maynard Keynes. Let's see if Weisenthal can be a supporter of the Keynesian, Paul Krugman, after reading this book.

This is what Murray Rothbard had to say in the foreword to Hazlitt's book:
Keynes' General Theory is here riddled chapter by chapter, line by line, with due account taken of the latest theoretical developments. The complete refutation of a vast network of fallacy can only be accomplished by someone thoroughly grounded in a sound positive theory. Henry Hazlitt has that groundwork.
An "Austrian" follower of Ludwig von Mises, he is uniquely qualified for this task, and performs it surpassingly well. It is no exaggeration to say that this is by far the best book on economics published since Mises' great Human Action in 1949. Mises' work set forth the completed structure of the modern "Austrian" theory. Hazlitt's fine critique of Keynes, based on these principles, is a worthy complement to Human Action.
