User Review  - Joel Blunt - Goodreads

Not very good. Hayeck's arguments are often weak. That being said, I think his argument that regulation requires a centralized capacity to react to unforeseen consequences of said regulation was good ... Read full review

User Review  - David - Goodreads

I found this book to be obvious and tedious. His primary goal was to argue against state planning of an economy and for the virtue of the free market. I don't think this argument is relevant any ... Read full review
