Review: The Road to Serfdom

User Review  - Don - Goodreads

Sparkling writing (as usual from Hayek), but at the service of a thoroughly falsified hypothesis. No, the welfare state did not lead to serfdom, contrary to the predictions of this work in the mold of the "Bad" Hayek (the polemicist, not the economist). Read full review

User Review  - Krollo - Goodreads

I may have read an abridged version of this, but it still had all the key points in. Anyway, this book is arguably more about politics than economics, in that central economic planning leads to authoritarianism (and I don't really doubt him). Read full review

Review: The Road to Serfdom

User Review  - Matthew - Goodreads

Clear ideas about how we give up freedoms in return for what is called security, and how good ideas become intractable paradigms. Socialism and Fascism can lead to dictatorships. Read full review
