Knowledge Questions: Hayek, Keynes and Beyond
AbstractThis paper discusses the “knowledge problem” in terms of both the use and generation of knowledge. This is analyzed in the context of Hayek's failure to respond to the “Keynes Challenge”—the claim that markets fail to produce relevant knowledge—by suggesting that in the aftermath of The General Theory he was not well-positioned to address that problem. Ironically, his post-World War II work in cognitive psychology, The Sensory Order, offers a theory of the generation of knowledge which can provide a useful analogy for understanding the generation of market-level knowledge.
