5.0 out of 5 stars F A Hayek was a Julian L. Simon fan..., October 19, 1999
This review is from: The Ultimate Resource 2 (Paperback)
Professor Simon does state that a large proportion of attacks on his thesis come from biologists, who "...for many decades and centuries - back to Benjamin Franklin...have voiced the strongest fears of population growth...much of what they write...is even outside of ordinary scientific discourse..."
This book is a truly great work and has many fans including the late, great, F A Hayek [from The Ultimate Resource p. 614/615]....
"Dear Professor Simon,
I have never before written a fan letter to a professional colleague, but to discover that you have in your Economics of Population Growth provided the empirical evidence for what with me is the result of a life-time of theoretical speculation, is too exciting an experience not to share it with you...
[Freidburg March 22, 1981]
...I have now at last had time to read [The Ultimate Resource] with enthusiastic agreement...Your new book I welcome chiefly for the practical effects I am hoping from it. Though you will be at first much abused, I believe the more intelligent will soon recognize the soundness of your case...
[Shimoda Tokyu Nove 6, 1981]
With best wishes, Sincerely, F.A. Hayek
