Which one of these should be read first?

 

If I read Where Keynes Went Wrong, does that make Failure of the New Economics redundant? And the other way around?

I have read neither but I know that Hazlitt's work is much more of a classic, so I would start with it.

At last those coming came and they never looked back With blinding stars in their eyes but all they saw was black...

I would start with learning economics first, whether it be Austrian or neoclassical.

I am, I'm reading Man Economy and State right now. This is more of a question for the future.

Read the Study Guide of Man, Economy, and State to avoid confusion. The Failure of the 'New Economics' is more of a critique than a good introduction to economics for Keynes was a horribly bad writer. I believe Hazlitt’s best work is Economics in One Lesson.

I am,I'm using the study guide right now;Also,I've already read Economics in One Lesson.

 

I guess Where Keynes Went Wrong should come first.
