Henry Hazlitt (November 28, 1894 - July 8, 1993) was a libertarian philosopher, economist and journalist for The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and Newsweek, among other publications. He was credited with bringing Austrian economics to an English-speaking audience.

Hazlitt is well-known for his book Economics in One Lesson, but he also wrote other books, among which a major work on ethics, The Foundations of Morality, and The Failure of the New Economics, a detailed chapter-by-chapter critique of Keynes's "General Theory" (of which he wrote 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.")

Hazlitt was the founding vice-president of the Foundation for Economic Education and an early editor of The Freeman magazine.

A well-known quote from Henry Hazlitt: "Wit is the salt of conversation, not the food."
