“This book also discloses new and interesting information pertaining to Hayek’s involvement in important events and developments in the 20th century … . This new information has the potential to inspire future research in the areas of economic thought, liberalism, and the life and work of Hayek himself. … could serve to motivate further discussion and research on the current anomalies that prevail within the discipline and profession of economics, as well as the defects of free market capitalism.” (Birsen Filip, History of Economic Thought and Policy, Vol. 2, 2015)
