Early life and education
As he later wrote, his short time at college "had a greater influence than may at first sight be supposed, not as much from the knowledge gained there, as from the increased consciousness of the knowledge which I still had to gain and the consequent ambition to attain it."
Hazlitt started his career at The Wall Street Journal
as secretary to the managing editor when he was still a teenager, and his interest in the field of economics began while working there. His studies led him to The Common Sense of Political Economy
by Philip Wicksteed
which, he later said, was his first "tremendous influence" in the subject.
Hazlitt published his first book, Thinking as a Science
at age 21.
He wrote the book because he realized—through his intense process of self-education—that it was more important to think clearly than to merely absorb information. As he explains in its opening pages:
Every man knows there are evils in the world which need setting right. Every man has pretty definite ideas as to what these evils are. But to most men one in particular stands out vividly. To some, in fact, this stands out with such startling vividness that they lose sight of other evils, or look upon them as the natural consequences of their own particular evil-in-chief.
To the Socialist this evil is the capitalistic system; to the prohibitionist it is intemperance; to the feminist it is the subjection of women; to the clergyman it is the decline of religion; to Andrew Carnegie it is war; to the staunch Republican it is the Democratic Party, and so on, ad infinitum.
I, too, have a pet little evil, to which in more passionate moments I am apt to attribute all the others. This evil is the neglect of thinking. And when I say thinking I mean real thinking, independent thinking, hard thinking.
During World War I
, he served in the Army Air Service. While residing in Brooklyn, he enlisted in New York City on February 11, 1918, and served with the Aviation Section of the Signal Enlisted Reserve Corps until July 9, 1918. He was then in Princeton, New Jersey, at the US School of Military Aeronautics until October 22, when he was sent to AS Camp Dick in Dallas, Texas, for a few weeks until November 7, and he was honorably discharged from service with the rank of private first class on December 12, 1918. He returned to New York, residing at Washington Square Park
for many years.
Editor and author
In the early 1920s, he was financial editor of The New York Evening Mail
, and during this period, Hazlitt reported his understanding of economics was further refined by frequent discussions with former Harvard economics professor Benjamin Anderson
, who was then working for Chase National Bank
in Manhattan. Later, when the publisher W. W. Norton
suggested he write an official biography of their author Bertrand Russell
, Hazlitt spent "a good deal of time," as he described it, with the famous philosopher.
Lord Russell "so admired the young journalist's talent" that he had agreed with Norton's proposal,
but the project ended after nearly two years of work when Russell declared his intention to write his own autobiography.
During the interwar decades, a vibrant period in the history of American literature
, Hazlitt served as literary editor of The New York Sun
(1925–1929), and as literary editor of the left
-leaning journal, The Nation
(1930–1933). In connection with his work for The Nation
, Hazlitt also edited A Practical Program for America
(1932), a compilation of Great Depression
policy considerations, but he was in the minority in calling for less government intervention in the economy.
After a series of public debates with socialist Louis Fischer
, Hazlitt and The Nation
In 1933, Hazlitt published The Anatomy of Criticism
, an extended "trialogue" examining the nature of literary criticism
and appreciation, regarded by some to be an early refutation of literary deconstruction
In the same year, he became H. L. Mencken
's chosen successor as editor of the literary magazine, The American Mercury
, which Mencken had founded with George Jean Nathan
as a result of which appointment Vanity Fair
included Hazlitt among those hailed in its regular "Hall of Fame" photo feature.
Due to increasing differences with the publisher, Alfred A. Knopf, Sr.
, he served in that role for only a brief time, but Mencken wrote that Hazlitt was the "only competent critic of the arts that I have heard of who was at the same time a competent economist, of practical as well as theoretical training," adding that he "is one of the few economists in human history who could really write."
From 1934 to 1946, Hazlitt was the principal editorial writer on finance and economics for The New York Times
, writing both a signed weekly column and most of the unsigned editorials on economics, producing a considerable volume of work.
Following World War II
, he came into conflict with Arthur Hays Sulzberger
, publisher of The New York Times
, over the newly established Bretton Woods system
which created the World Bank
and the International Monetary Fund
. Hazlitt opposed the Bretton Woods agreement, primarily fearing the risk of inflation. After agreeing not to write on the topic, he looked for another venue for his work, deciding on Newsweek
magazine, for which he wrote a signed column, "Business Tides", from 1946 to 1966.
According to Hazlitt, the greatest influence on his writing in economics was the work of Ludwig von Mises
, and he is credited with introducing the ideas of the Austrian School
of economics to the English-speaking layman. In 1938, for example, he reviewed the recently published English translation of Mises's influential treatise Socialism
for The New York Times
, declaring it "a classic" and "the most devastating analysis of socialism yet penned."
After the Jewish
economist's emigration to the United States from National Socialist
-dominated Europe in 1940, Hazlitt arranged for Mises to contribute editorials to The New York Times
, and helped to secure for Mises a teaching position at New York University
. Along with the efforts of his friends, Max Eastman
and John Chamberlain
, Hazlitt also helped introduce F. A. Hayek
's The Road to Serfdom
to the American reading public. His 1944 review in The New York Times
caused Reader's Digest
, where Eastman served as roving editor, to publish one of its trademark condensations, bringing the future Nobel
laureate's work to a vast audience.
Author Tom Malone contends that Hazlitt distinguished himself from other economists largely by his skill as a writer:
What set Hazlitt apart from other writers on economics was the incredible clarity of his writing and his ability to make the subject interesting to laymen. He did this by focusing on principles, using practical examples, and writing in a direct and conversational style. He also avoided the technical jargon and reliance on statistics that stud the writing of most economists—to the bane of most readers. When H. L. Mencken selected Hazlitt to succeed him as literary editor at the American Mercury, he called Hazlitt the “only competent critic of the arts that I have heard of who was at the same time a competent economist,” as well as “one of the few economists in human history who could really write.”
Unlike many other writers of his generation from the political right
, Hazlitt never experienced a period when he was a socialist or communist
, or a significant change in his classical liberal
political views. He was the founding vice president of the Foundation for Economic Education
, which also acquired his large personal library in the 1980s. Established by Leonard Read
in 1946, FEE is considered to be the first "think tank" for free-market ideas. He was also one of the original members of the classical liberal Mont Pelerin Society
With John Chamberlain (and Suzanne La Follette
as managing editor
), Hazlitt served as editor of the early free market
publication The Freeman
from 1950 to 1952, and as sole editor-in-chief from 1952 to 1953, and its contributors during his tenure there included Hayek, Mises, and Wilhelm Röpke
, as well as the writers James Burnham
, John Dos Passos
, Max Eastman
, John T. Flynn
, Frank Meyer
, Raymond Moley
, Morrie Ryskind
, and George Sokolsky
Prior to his becoming editor, The Freeman
had supported Senator Joseph McCarthy
in his conflict with President Harry Truman
on the issue of communism
, "undiscriminatingly" according to some critics, but upon becoming editor, Hazlitt changed the magazine's policy to one of support for President Truman.
is widely considered to be an important forerunner to the conservative National Review
, founded by William F. Buckley, Jr.
, which from the start included many of the same contributing editors.
Hazlitt himself was on the masthead of National Review
, either as a contributing editor or, later, as contributor, from its inception in 1955 until his death in 1993. Differences existed between the journals: The Freeman
under Hazlitt was more secular
and presented a wider range of foreign policy
opinion than the later National Review
Even prior to her success with The Fountainhead
, the novelist Ayn Rand
was a friend of both Hazlitt and his wife, Frances, and Hazlitt introduced Rand to Mises, bringing together the two figures who would become most associated with the defense of pure laissez-faire
The two became admirers of Hazlitt and of one another.
Journalistic career timeline
Economics and philosophy
The times call for courage. The times call for hard work. But if the demands are high, it is because the stakes are even higher. They are nothing less than the future of liberty, which means the future of civilization. Lew Rockwell
called Economics in One Lesson
(1946), Hazlitt's "most enduring contribution".
With a million copies sold and available in ten languages,
conservative, free market
circles consider it an "enduring classic".[failed verification] Ayn Rand
called it a "magnificent job of theoretical exposition," while Congressman Ron Paul
ranks it with the works of Frédéric Bastiat
and F. A. Hayek
Hayek himself praised the work,
as did fellow Nobel Prize laureate Milton Friedman
, who said that Hazlitt's description of the price system, for example, was "a true classic: timeless, correct, painlessly instructive".[failed verification]
In his book Basic Economics
, Thomas Sowell
also compliments Hazlitt,[need quotation to verify]
and Sowell's work has been cited as "following" in the "Bastiat-Hazlitt tradition" of economic exposition.
In 1996 Laissez Faire Books
issued a 50th anniversary edition with an introduction by publisher and presidential candidate Steve Forbes
Another of Hazlitt's enduring
works, The Failure of the "New Economics"
(1959), gives a detailed, chapter-by-chapter critique of John Maynard Keynes
's highly influential General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money
With reference to Keynes's book, Hazlitt paraphrased a quote attributed to Samuel Johnson
, that he was "unable to find in it a single doctrine that is both true and original. What is original in the book is not true; and what is true is not original."[failed verification]
Hazlitt also published three books on the subject of inflation, including From Bretton Woods to World Inflation
(1984), and two influential works on poverty, Man vs. The Welfare State
(1969), and The Conquest of Poverty
(1973), thought by some[who?]
to have anticipated the later work of Charles Murray
in Losing Ground
In A New Constitution Now
(1942), published during Franklin D. Roosevelt
's unprecedented third term as President of the United States
, Hazlitt called for the replacement of the existing fixed-term presidential tenure in the United States with a more Anglo-European system of "cabinet" government, under which a head of state who had lost the confidence of the legislature or cabinet might be removed from office after a no-confidence vote in as few as 30 days.
In 1951, following Roosevelt's death in 1945, the United States imposed presidential term limits
Hazlitt's 1951 novel The Great Idea
(reissued in 1966 as Time Will Run Back
depicts rulers of a centrally-planned socialist dystopia
discovering, amid the resulting economic chaos, the need to restore a market pricing-system
, private ownership of capital goods and competitive markets.
Henry was born to Stuart Clark and Bertha (Zauner) Hazlitt on November 28, 1894 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. They resided at 819 North Broad Street in Philadelphia. The Hazlitt family was originally from England, although his paternal grandmother was from Ireland. His maternal grandparents were German immigrants. Henry's father, a clerk, died of diabetes when Henry was only five months old. His mother, Bertha, then married Frederick E. Piebes, who was engaged in manufacturing, and they resided in Brooklyn, where Henry was raised. Henry is listed on the 1905 New York state census as Henry S. Piebes, and he is listed on Frederick's will as Henry Hazlitt Piebes, Frederick's adopted son. His stepfather died in 1907, leaving Henry to support his mother and probably leading to the ambition that enabled him to work at the Wall Street Journal
while he was still a teenager.
In 1929, Hazlitt married Valerie Earle, daughter of the noted photographer and Vitagraph
film director William P. S. Earle
. They were married by the pacifist
minister, John Haynes Holmes
, but later divorced.
In 1936, he married Frances Kanes, the author of The Concise Bible
with whom he later collaborated to produce an anthology of the Stoic
philosophers, The Wisdom of the Stoics: Selections from Seneca, Epictetus, and Marcus Aurelius
(1984). They were married until Frances' death in 1991.
Hazlitt died at the age of 98 in Fairfield, Connecticut. At the time of his death, he resided in Wilton, Connecticut.
Hazlitt was a prolific writer, authoring 25 works in his lifetime.
Ludwig von Mises
said at a dinner honoring Hazlitt: "In this age of the great struggle in favor of freedom and the social system in which men can live as free men, you are our leader. You have indefatigably fought against the step-by-step advance of the powers anxious to destroy everything that human civilization has created over a long period of centuries... You are the economic conscience of our country and of our nation."
Henry Hazlitt Foundation
From 1997 to 2002, there was an organization called The Henry Hazlitt Foundation
which actively promoted libertarian
networking online, especially through its website Free-Market.Net. This organization was named in honor of Hazlitt because he was known for introducing a wide range of people to libertarian ideas through his writing and for helping free-market advocates connect with each other. The foundation was started after Hazlitt's death and had no official connection with his estate.
