My Problem With Modern Hayekians

By Robert H.

This is how most Hayekians sound to me:

"1. Society is complex beyond our wildest imaginings.  Anyone who tells you they can predict, control, or regulate that mass of madness well enough to use government productively is insane.
2. Now here are all the massive changes I want to make in our government.  I can guarantee they will all work."

Seriously, though, I've been reading Hayek and really like him.  The dude earned his Nobel.  I wish less libertarian academics thought he was an important legal thinker, though, about which I will blog more later.
