    Hayek gives the main arguments for the free-market case and presents his manifesto on the "errors of socialism."

Errors of Socialism

by fb101 on Jan 5, 2009

Friedrich A Von Hayek, one of the two best-known Austrian economists on record, has written a masterpiece that all Americans should be required to read.
