Hayek's New Popularity
As FOXNews talk show host Glenn Beck and others champion Friedrich von Hayek's The Road to Serfdom, its sales have soared. Hayek warned that even a moderate social safety net would lead to a totalitarian government. It did not happen. But this does not deter his avid supporters. The authors follow up on their article on the subject in the previous issue of Challenge to identify how misplaced the fear invoked by Beck and others isâand how wrong Hayek was.
