Hayek: A Collaborative Biography pp Cite as. Opinion about the role government should play in the macroeconomy tends to conform to a rhythm, an ebb and flow, determined by circumstances and influenced by ideas. This book examines the ideas of John Maynard Keynes and Friedrich Hayek from the s to the present, and concludes that interest in their theories and policy proposals waxed and waned according to changes in economic conditions. It is at once a study of the development of modern macroeconomic theory and policy, and a review of competing political philosophies. The author is a Reuters contributing columnist and former senior editor at The Times of London.

This book examines the ideas of John Maynard Keynes and Friedrich Hayek from the s to the present, and concludes that interest in their theories and policy proposals waxed and waned according to changes in economic conditions.

He writes with an engaging style and adopts a light touch, calculated no doubt to attract a wide audience. The book, to be sure, is a good read. But historians of economic thought — and economists in general — will be disappointed perhaps with the superficial nature of much of the argument. Yet the book may assist the general reader to understand the evolution of economic ideas, as long as it is recognized that substantial liberties have been taken to simplify the argument.

The Tale of the Dueling Economists

Hayek--their ideas, their disagreements, their friendship and how the two men influenced economists and public policy during their lifetimes and beyond. I know the Austrians will hate his policy ideas but the business cycle theory can stand on its own. And it improves on Keynes by relying less on psychology and more on tangible incentives to explain that credit expansion. For our favorite battle Keynes vs. Hayek I can recommend this podcast a competitor website although never as good a Russ of course. Great stuff! A fine episode!

Keynes Hayek: The Clash that Defined Modern Economics

I n a famous free-market economist made a significant decision. He knew that in Arkansas the state laws made divorce easy — and cheap. But his real love, previously married herself, had told him that she was now free to remarry. So the economist got a job at the University of Arkansas and, once resident, also got a divorce, quickly and efficiently, all at a very reasonable price.

Keynes - Hayek by Nicholas Wapshott - review

The names conjure opposing poles of thought about making economic policy: Keynes is often held up as the flag bearer of vigorous government intervention in the markets, while Hayek is regarded as the champion of laissez-faire capitalism. This lively book explores one of the most pressing economic questions of our time: To what extent should government intervene in markets? And in that search, it traces the interaction of the two men most responsible for the way we approach this question: the British economist Keynes and the Austrian economist Hayek. Both men came of intellectual age in the aftermath of World War I. They lived through the boom of the s and through the Great Depression and arrived at radically different views of the wisdom of letting free-market capitalism run its course. Keynes concluded that markets would not automatically provide full employment and that during downturns there could be long periods of large-scale unemployment. Wapshott, a Reuters contributing columnist and a former senior editor at The Times of London, skillfully reconstructs the context in which Keynes formulated his theory.
