"I am convinced we shall never have good money again so long as we leave it in the hands of government. Government has always destroyed the monetary systems."
Friedrich A. Hayek
Interview with Leo Rosten, 1978
Introduction by Armen Alchian
The idea of capturing visually and orally the personality of Friedrich von Hayek, 1974 Nobel laureate, was so attractive that when the Earhart Foundation agreed to fund such an arrangement, the Pacific Academy for Advanced Studies was proud to undertake the pleasant task. No attempt was made in these interviews to restate or review Hayek's staggering intellectual accomplishments or his influence on contemporary understanding of social, political, and economic events.
