F.A. Hayek on Constructivism and Ethics
Long before receiving his Nobel Prize, Friedrich von Hayek was well respected in the academic community. John Maynard Keynes had glowing praise for Hayek's 1944 The Road to Serfdom. Milton Friedman and Paul Samuelson, antagonists on many issues, agree that Hayek's 1945 "The Use of Knowledge in Society" was a major contribution to political-economic thought. These early works by Hayek led a writer for the Nation to express what must have been the view of a great many, that "because [Hayek] is among the most thoughtful and consistent supporters of a market economy. . . those who disagree with him cannot ignore him."'
