ANOTHER BRAIN DEAD ATTACK ON HAYEK

Here.

The universities seem to crank out an endless supply of these non-serious leftist “intellectuals”.

HAYEK & MISES — COMPARE & CONTRAST

Richard Ebeling and I have an extended discussion in the comments section of a post by Steve Horwitz, hashing out the commonalities shared by Friedrich Hayek and Ludwig Mises — and the differences which distinguish the work of each economist.

WHAT DID HAYEK THINK OF ALFRED SCHUTZ?

Richard Ebeling tells us:

Long ago (1975), when I was first becoming interested in Schutz’s writings on intersubjective structures of meaning and ideal types, I asked Hayek what he thought of Schutz and if Schutz had any influence on him.

Has anyone seen this?  It’s a 60 minute interview with Friedrich Hayek conducted in the early 1980s by investment manager Kenneth Gerbino, who headed an organization he’d created called the American Economic Council at the time of the interview.  He’s charging $8.95 for viewings of the video.
