"It's one of my present arguments that
we have created institutions in which the politicians
are forced to be partial... It's impossible in that
situation to be strictly honest, but it's not their fault.
It's the fault of the institutions which we have created."
Friedrich A. Hayek
Interview with Bob Chitester, 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.
