Why is The Road to Serfdom still #1 on Amazon?
But that only explains so much. The Amazon list is updated hourly. Today is another day.
And Hayek’s The Road to Serfdom is still in orbit at #1 on Amazon.
Here’s my wager. A lot more than just the few people who saw the Beck show are buying Hayek’s book. Amazon browsers are discovering the book by the accident of its #1 status, they’re thinking about the news, and they are looking at the price — and they’re buying the book. And they don’t know a thing about Glenn Beck’s show yesterday.
