Reagan Reads Hayek


Reagan greets Hayek in the White House

From Steven Hayward, The Age of Reagan, 1964-1980, The Fall of the Old Liberal Order, p. xxii:

“Lee Edwards recalls being once left along in Reagan’s study while then-Governor Reagan went to the kitchen to prepare cocktails.  Edwards began browsing Reagan’s bookshelves, and was astonished to find dense works of political economy by authors such as Ludwig von Mises and Friedrich Hayek heavily underlined and annotated in Reagan’s handwriting .. “

Has anyone yet documented those annotations?  This may call for a trip up to Simi Valley …

In some fields [science] has developed important theories which give us much insight into the general character of some phenomena, but will never produce predictions of particular events or a full explanation, simply because we can never know all of the particular facts which according to these theories we would have to know in order to arrive at such concrete conclusions. — F. A. Hayek
