More About the Author

Friedrich August Hayek (1899-1992), recipient of the Medal of Freedom in 1991 and co-winner of the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics in 1974, was a pioneer in monetary theory and the principal proponent of libertarianism in the twentieth century. He taught at the University of London, the University of Chicago, and the University of Freiburg. His influence on the economic policies in capitalist countries has been profound, especially during the Reagan administration in the U.S. and the Thatcher government in the U.K.

Format: Paperback
Nobel laureate F. A. Hayek makes a powerful case that government involvement in providing a medium of exchange (money) is neither necessary nor beneficial. In fact, government provision of currency is a threat to both liberty and financial stability. Hayek points out that governments have everywhere and always undermined the value of their currencies to reap revenue through inflation. He argues, convincingly, that the best hope for sound money lies in competition amongst privately issued currencies. This is an essential read for anyone interested in Free Banking or Laissez-faire Money.
