Economics in One Lesson by Henry Hazlitt

Old but good.

Still digesting it. Had never heard of this one before.

The One Lesson:

From this aspect, therefore, the whole of economics can be reduced to a single lesson, and that lesson can be reduced to a single sentence. The art of economics consists in looking not merely at the immediate but at the longer effects of any act or policy; it consists in tracing the consequences of that policy not merely for one group but for all groups.
