“Road to Serfdom” Available in PDF

October 10, 2005 by

The Atlas Foundation has made available a PDF of the condensed (Readers’ Digest) version of Hayek’s The Road To Serfdom, with an introduction by John Blundell. The book is a classic critique of the political dangers inherent in economic central planning. There are a number of insightful quotes in the summary section on page 27, of which my favorite is: “The more the state ‘plans’ the more difficult planning becomes for the individual.”

The Library of Economics and Liberty has made available a PDF of Mises Socialism.

Along with this article, I suggest reading Stephen Baskerville’s “Welfare and the ‘Road to Serfdom’” at http://www.ipi.org/ipi/IPIPublications.nsf/PublicationLookupFullText/E2A78BF98EDE3E33862572FB00696FED

good god hayek and friedman etc no the chicago school are all responsible for the illegal military coup in chile his philosophies were bank rolled by the buisness sector and banking such as the rothchilds his philosophies were to publicies there wants

his is a means for the middle classes to control and well extort what they want with no retrobution or redress “There is some truth in the formula stating that fascism and national-socialism are sort of medium-level class socialism” 86-87 road to serfdom

he wanted a select elite to rule and others to bark and follow and the ignorance of many and the propoganda of the neo liberal “class” shall allow such minimal governance

Fail. Must do better.

darran,

Of all the arguments one could formulate against Hayek work, the ad hominem against the author himself, is the weakest.

They only point the book attempts to make is the one you almost get right in your statement, “There is some truth in the formula…”.

The rest is simiply a very weak attempt to discredit the author, without addressing what he has written.

Obama has spent FAR more time talking with Chavez than Friedman spent talking with Pinochet. Obama apparently has taken the advice of Chavez on how to run the US economy. Pinochet did NOT follow Friedman’s advise FULLY. These attacks on Friedman are so weak as to be meaningless.
