F. A. Hayek was born in Vienna on May 8, 1899. The New Yorker wrote recently, “It is hardly an exaggeration to refer to the twentieth century as the Hayek century.” Former Yale University president Benno Schmidt says, “Hayek has become a pivotal figure for me – his thought in fact dominates economic and public policy thinking in the United States today.” While that may be, alas, an exaggeration, Hayek is certainly one of the greatest thinkers of modern times. And now he has the full-length biography he deserves. Please join us to hear Alan Ebenstein, coauthor of Great Political Thinkers: Plato to the Present and Today’s Isms: Socialism, Capitalism, Fascism, Communism, and Libertarianism, and Jerry Z. Muller discuss Hayek’s life and work on his 102nd birthday.
