This book is a classic and I must say after reading it I was spurred on to even more serious pursuit of information on the subject of government interference in U.S. economics.

Individual liberty v. Government control
F. A. Hayek lived through and escaped from a government that became socialist and, inevitably, totalitarian. The paralells in "The Road to Serfdom", which was published in 1944, with waht is happening today in Europe and America are uncanny. The propaganda, the confusion of the meanings of words, the corruption and lies so rampant today. We need to wake up. This book is a great place to start.

Full of factual information
I found this book fascinating but difficult to read. You really have to pay attention and not let your mind wander or you will miss the point. This is a book all freedom loving people should read if they want to retain their freedom.

Although this book would be a slog for most people, it is a fantastic piece of the puzzled world we inhabit today. I wish I had read it while studying economics in college.
