Friedrich Hayek

A new, old idea is bubbling up at the nation's cocktail parties.
Speaking of health, a Bernie flunkie spoke on television last week about about how payroll taxes should be increased in order
One of my favorite interviews -- and certainly one of the most important for the future of our country -- is my first with Jeffrey Tucker. If you are of a pro-liberty persuasion, in particular, I invite you to make a cup of coffee, sit back, and enjoy this very incisive discussion.
The sooner modern libertarians realize conservatives are not their friends, the sooner they can get around to actually promoting the extension of individual rights for all people -- including people conservatives hate.
Government will never get fixed until humans within it are allowed the flexibility that goes along with taking responsibility. Only then can democracy hold them accountable for the many failings of modern government.
I have built my career on the belief that all students can benefit from learning how to start and maintain a small business. But without understanding the theoretical underpinnings of this movement, we lose some of its significance.
These are hard-working folks, often with two jobs, who simply can't survive on what they are paid. Think about it. Work 50 hours at $8 bucks an hour, and your weekly pre-tax income is $400, or about $20,000 annually. Raise a family of four on that.
The sequester that took effect March 1 is a case in point. Some House Republicans have called it the Tea Party's biggest success to date. But a success for whom?
Economics has strict limits; it can't speak to matters of faith, metaphysics or Platonic absolutes. That's another category
Not quite a "Hayekian," because I disagreed with the master that mathematics could not be used to illuminate theory, and distrustful of Keynesian theory, which advocated massive government spending and deficits -- I felt I had no intellectual home.
As we seek to choose our next president, we are also still trying to decide, as a nation, whether to risk our still-fragile economic recovery on the competing theories of Keynes and Hayek.
As we walked to breakfast, we talked about the hotly debated issue of whether insurance policies were part of the money supply. Friedman was fascinated by the question, having made part of his reputation on defining how to measure the supply of money
Dr. Friedman listened politely while I went on and on about my research on the lengthening of the production structure. At some point, Friedman laughed in his characteristic good-natured way, and simply began to talk over me, ignoring my poor manners.
Our daily actions and choices have real consequences for the environment that we bequeath to our children, and I was taken aback by some of these American practices upon my return from abroad.
There's right-wing hypocrisy, and then there's this: Charles Koch, billionaire patron of free-market libertarianism, privately
Unlike the movies, life rarely permits second takes. But the Second World War gave John Maynard Keynes, the patron saint
If conservatives don't like labor unions, they are entitled to their opinions. But when they attack unions by arguing that they actually hurt working people, they don't have the facts on their side. They are crying wolf.
We shall find too that such current notions as that society 'acts' or that it 'treats', 'rewards', or 'remunerates' persons
The Free Market faithful have rewritten a great deal of history. But their most recent claim that Franklin Roosevelt started the Great Depression? That's just ludicrous.
