A Good Piece on Hayek’s Distiction Between Two Kinds of Welfare Provision

Kevin Vallier explains some very basic and important distinctions found in Hayek’s work on the topic of welfare provision, the rule of law, and the redistributive schemes of socialists and the left.

It’s clear that most leftists, such as Brad DeLong and Henry Farrell, have no interest in any of this, their aim is to generate the stinkiest red herring they can create, and nothing else.  But if you’re interested in Hayek’s social philosophy, you’ll likely find Vallier’s piece of some interest.

UPDATE:  A reality check on this topic from Ryan Murphy, well worth reading.
