Book #15: The Road to Serfdom

The Road to Serfdom

by Friedrich Hayek

Written in the shadow of European fascist oppression, economist Friedrich Hayek wrote The Road to Serfdom to warn of the dangers of both fascism and socialist systems. Hayek believed that the removal of individual liberties would lead to a state of serfdom. He also argued against centrally planned economies, and was one of the primary opponents to the macroeconomic theories of John Maynard Keynes.

Although a new release of The Road to Serfdom is available electronically, I had ready access to a paperback copy of the “Fiftieth Anniversary” edition, published in 1994. This copy is from the University of Chicago Press, and is 262 pages long.
