The essays presented in this volume are the result of a Friedrich A. Hayek Colloquium that was held in Zurich. Under the auspices of the `Liberales Institut`, a small group of experts were invited to contend with Hayek - to re-examine the main tenets of his philosophy, and to discuss the enduring relevance of his ideas and precepts after the revolutions of 1989. Does Hayek`s thought contain guidance for coping with the social, political, and economic challenges of the 1990s?
“The period from 1985, in which the Soviet glasnost was given its public inception, and the present is that in which F.A. Hayek’s analysis of socialist central planning has been vindicated by history. His colleague, L. von Mises, had argued that the suppression of market pricing entailed by comprehensive central planning imposed on the planning institutions a task of calculation that was insuperably difficult.”
