In this session, Chapters 4 and 5 of Hazlitt are discussed by Jeffrey Herbener and Jeffrey Tucker. Herbener is a professor at Grove City College and a fellow at the Von Mises Institute. These two chapters wrestle with the notion that the government can help the economy by creating jobs through public works.
