AbstractAs anger at President Barack Obama's social policies grows in some quarters, scholars and talk show hosts alike have said Friedrich von Hayek's 1944 best-seller >i>The Road to Serfdom>/i> warrants another look. But does it? Hayek maintained that even the U. S. social welfare net would lead to totalitarian government. It has not. But that does not stop some from citing the book as a foundation for ominous warnings about the United States.
