Synopsis

Hayek: A Collaborative Biography Part IX: The Divine Right of the 'Free' Market by Robert Leeson

F. A. von Hayek (1899-1992) was a Nobel Prize winning economist, famous for promoting an Austrian version of classical liberalism. This multi-volume biography examines the evolution of his life and influence. In this ninth volume of Leeson's collaborative biography of Friedrich August von Hayek, a variety of well-known contributors discuss Hayek's views on the divine right of the market taking democratic and free-market principles into account.
