1027: Henry Hazlitt – Government Creates Artificial Demand

Inflation distorts the structure of production. It leads to the overexpansion of some industries at the expense of others. This involves a misapplication and waste of capital.

For it is the nature of inflation to give birth to a thousand illusions. —Henry HazlittDownload Print Quality (5924×7680) 361KB  |  Normal Quality (2962×3840) 329KB
