The Constitution of Liberty

Friedrich Hayek’s Constitution of Liberty surely merits front rank in any list of outstanding books on liberty, free market economics, history, and political philosophy. What is especially remarkable about the work is that it makes important contributions in each of these areas.

Personally, I have always been taken by the broad-minded view that Professor Hayek brought to his writings. Surely, this classic work strengthens the case for the free market. Yet, as a fine scholar, Hayek volunteers the notion that the marketplace can adjust to a substantial amount of government intervention.

Not that he advocates a large role for government, but he brings to bear a special wisdom in examining such controversial questions from a truly scholarly viewpoint. That rare trait is especially helpful in reaching those who now hold different viewpoints.
