Product Description

Review

"This book is very good - ideal as an easy to read introduction to Hayek's ideas and influence for somebody who has heard of him but hasn't actually engaged with him before. The style, as always with Eamonn, is very clear and straightforward. I like the structure as well, which has a natural flow of subject matter and argument to it."
--Dr Stephen Davies, Education Director, Institute of Economic Affairs

Format: Paperback
Hayek and his ideas are still largely unknown even though they have been hugely influential in modern western economies. The average broadsheet reader could probably give a vague definition of Keynsian theory, "spend a bit more on public works when times are tough, build up a reserve when the economy is booming," but would not know where to start with Hayek. Well this is where to start. Whether you think he was right or wrong you should read it to get a broad background understanding. The only warning is that if you have a belief that he is wrong or irrelevant you might start thinking, and thinking that maybe he has the answer. But take the risk, it is an enjoyable read as well as being educational.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of ASI / Eamonn Butler's useful overviews of Austrian Economics 21 July 2015
By Hunter Hastings - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Eamonn Butler and the Adam Smith Institute in the UK prepare and publish brief overviews of the work of Austrian Economics and its principal theorists including Mises and Hayek. They've done the same for Adam Smith (covering both Wealth of Nations and Theory of Moral Sentiments). Very useful, quick reads.
