Hayek vs. Hayek

In two weeks time I will be attending a Liberty Fund seminar in Vancouver.

It’s going to be a pretty highbrow get together. One of the things we will be discussing at this event, for instance, is the works of Friederich Hayek, noted Austrian free-market economic thinker.

Now I am reluctant to admit this, but I have never read any of Hayek’s works. It’s not that I have anything against Hayek, it’s just that I’m not really into this philosophic stuff.

Or to put it another way, I’m not smart enough to understand any of it.

Luckily wonkitties has come to the rescue and pointed me to a site that might help me to understand this great man better.

Or maybe not.

I can't believe no one left a comment here, Gerry. I think your readers are humourless wonders!

Nah, it's just that sometimes my brilliant wit stuns them into silence.

I don't think anyone should be making jokes about Hayek or Mises to be honest; their ideas are much to valuable to throw away on humour
