  Friedrich A. Hayek (1899-1992)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-11)
Friedrich A. Hayek, who died on March 23, 1992, at the age of 92, was probably the most prodigious classical liberal scholar of the 20th century.
Hayek was convinced that the essential point to convey to Keynes and the rest of the economics profession concerning monetary policy lay in capital theory.

 FRIEDRICH A. HAYEK
Friedrich August von Hayek (1899-), a central figure in twentieth-century economics and foremost representative of the Austrian tradition, 1974 Nobel laureate in Economics, a prolific author not only in the field of economics but also in the fields of political philosophy, psychology, and epistemology, was born in Vienna, Austria on May 8, 1899.
Hayek soon came to be a vigorous participant in the debates that raged in England during the 1930s concerning monetary, capital, and business-cycle theories and was a major figure in the celebrated controversies with John Maynard Keynes, Piero Sraffa, and Frank H. Knight.
Hayek integrated his own developments in these fields into a cohesive account of a market process that tends towards intertemporal coordination and of central-bank policies that can interfere with that process in such a way as to cause artificial economic booms which are inevitably followed by economic busts.

 Friedrich A. Hayek
Hayek thus shared with Hume a profound conviction that we should be "sensible of our ignorance." Hayek also shared with Hume the conviction that the "foundation of the inference" to propositions of ethics or politics was not necessarily available to us.
Hayek's theory in that respect, however, reflected Karl Popper's view that propositions of ethics or politics can be tested with the same mechanism of falsification used by scientific method.
Hayek's personal and professional relationship with Popper, whom he helped in his career, was somewhat ironic considering that Hayek was a cousin of the philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889-1951), with whom Popper disagreed on almost every conceivable philosophical issue.

 FRIEDRICH AUGUST VON HAYEK
At the L.S.E., Hayek was instrumental in furthering its then-novel "continental" bent and he was highly influential on his junior colleagues (such as Hicks) and students (which included Lerner and Kaldor).
In Hayek's words, the "fatal conceit" of the Oskar Lange and other "Socialists" in the calculation debate was that they believed this order could be "designed" by a planner who just gets the prices right, without realising that a price system evolved spontaneously as a result of lack of knowledge.
In tackling the evolution of political, social, legal and economic institutions, Hayek is rightly conceived as one of the founding fathers of "evolutionary economics".

 Brad DeLong's Semi-Daily Journal: Friedrich Hayek as Ideologue
This was central for Hayek, although in the end the fall of command socialism may have had more to do with the incentive problems for technological change in the system arising from its property arrangements as analyzed by von Mises originally in 1920.
Hayek, along with Popper and Whitehead, was a big opponent of predictive determinism as a scientific model, and some of his writings are early statements of principles of self-organization.
It seems that Hayek is pushing the evidence for his thesis,as far as I understand it from the debate in these comments, in RTS a lot further than the situation in 1956, that the vast majority of other observers would recognise, merits.

 Friedrich Hayek -- Philosophy Books and Online Resources
This soberly written book by a Nobel Laureate economist is a summary of the author's thoughts on socialism, knowledge in society, and the evolution of society and what he calls the "extended order" (roughly the interconnected system of transactions that make up the economy).
As for economics, the book works out the calculation argument against socialism, an economic argument that to people who have read Austrian economics is perhaps the most impressive and thorough argument against communism or socialism ever articulated.
It claims, a claim central to the evolutionary thesis, that socialism as such is simply a misguided attempt to correct a misunderstood system (the market economy) that solves problems (allocation of goods, coordination of economic activities, etc.) unsolvable by any other means.

 Friedrich A. von Hayek
Hayek long ago pointed out that 'market socialism' among state enterprises might provide a few mechanical rules such as 'Invest where the expected return exceeds a market rate of interest plus a risk premium'.
