"Business Tides" was the title of Hazlitt's column which ran in Newsweek from 1946 until the publishing of his final column for the magazine on September 12th, 1966. Written from a classical liberal standpoint with a grounding in Austrian economics, Hazlitt's columns covered the economic and political issues of the day concentrating on topics such as inflation, Keynesian economics, tax policy, price controls as well as a wide variety of other forms of government intervention. The volume includes a lengthy introduction writtern by Paul Milazzo which provides a thematic and historical perspective of Hazlitt's articles.
