Has God Mandated a Way for Economics?

Posted on November 14, 2015

By Tom Rose Is it true that, in the mind of God, it makes no difference under what kind of economic and political rule His children live? Or, to pose the question in another way, is God indifferent to the atmosphere and manner in which men exchange goods and services? Is He just as pleased […]

Christian Economics in One Lesson — Documented!

Written by Gary North on September 26, 2015

Henry Hazlitt wrote Economics in One Lesson in six weeks in early 1946. He was on a tight deadline: a leave of absence from The New York Times. He did not include footnotes. In 1946, there were few materials to footnote. Hazlitt stood alone in the community of financial journalists. Today, there is a wealth […]

Bad News for Traditional Catholics: Rev. Jim Wallis Cheers the Pope

Written by Gary North on September 26, 2015

Rev. Jim Wallis is ecstatic about the Pope’s visit to America. This is bad news for traditional Catholics. Having Jim Wallis on your side is comparable to getting full support from the Italian army. Who is Jim Wallis? He is this century’s #1 spokesman for Progressivism’s social gospel to the evangelical-fundamentalist Right. America’s Leftist media […]

Christian Economics in One Lesson, Conclusion

Written by Gary North on September 19, 2015

Hazlitt’s conclusion, Chapter 24, restated his thesis: the conceptual necessity of following the money in order to consider what an individual would have done with his money, had the state not intervened to “break his window.” It did not ask that most crucial of questions, “What is to be done?” Lenin asked it in 1902, […]

Henry Hazlitt’s Enormous Contribution

Written by Gary North on September 19, 2015

I started writing Christian Economics in One Lesson in late March. It took Hazlitt six weeks to write Economics in One Lesson in early 1946. If he devoted 40 hours a week, that would have been about 240 hours. It took me under 100 hours to write my book. I had the advantage of having […]

Christian Economics in One Lesson, Chapter 24

Written by Gary North on September 12, 2015

Thou shalt not steal (Exodus 20:15). Hazlitt’s version of the lesson was different from mine. What was the lesson, according to Hazlitt, that he was trying to teach? Here is his first paragraph of Chapter 24: Economics, as we have now seen again and again, is a science of recognizing secondary consequences. It is also […]

Christian Economics in One Lesson, Chapter 23

Written by Gary North on September 5, 2015

The Assault on Saving The LORD shall open unto thee his good treasure, the heaven to give the rain unto thy land in his season, and to bless all the work of thine hand: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, and thou shalt not borrow (Deuteronomy 28:12). He shall lend to thee, and thou […]

Christian Economics in One Lesson, Chapter 22

Written by Gary North on August 29, 2015

The Mirage of Inflation Thy silver is become dross, thy wine mixed with water (Isaiah 1:22). The prophet Isaiah was publicly criticizing the nation as a whole. He also spelled out the crimes of political rulers. They were bribe-takers. They were companions of thieves (v. 23). They rendered false judgment, cheating widows and orphans (v. […]

Christian Economics in One Lesson, Chapter 20

Written by Gary North on August 15, 2015

“Enough to Buy Back the Product” It is naught, it is naught, saith the buyer: but when he is gone his way, then he boasteth (Proverbs 20:14). Once again, Hazlitt returned to the issue of government price fixing. In Chapters 13, 15, 16, 18, and 19, price fixing was in the form of price floors. […]

Christian Economics in One Lesson, Chapter 19

Written by Gary North on August 8, 2015

Do Unions Really Raise Wages? It is naught, it is naught, saith the buyer: but when he is gone his way, then he boasteth (Proverbs 20:14). Once again, Hazlitt returned to the issue of government price fixing. In Chapters 13, 15, 16, and 18 price fixing was in the form of price floors. It is […]
