F. A. Hayek (1899–1992), recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1991 and cowinner of the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics in 1974, was a pioneer in monetary theory and a leading proponent of classical liberalism in the twentieth century. Ronald Hamowy is professor of history emeritus at the University of Alberta. He is the editor of The Encyclopedia of Libertarianism, among other books.
While I do not agree with everything in this book, it is a must read for any serious student of political economy.
Further, Hayek does not establish that liberty, as he understands it, is always the ultimate human good to which others must give place.
Hayek's "The Constitution of Liberty" is one of the most important books in social theory written in the twentieth century.
A very prescient book as written in 1960.
A must read for free market economists and political scientists.
