Reassessing Hayek as popularizer

Robert Nadeau
Université du Québec à Montreal
The Road to Serfdom (Hayek 1944)2 is without a doubt the book that made Friedrich Hayek world famous. But one must immediately add that Hayek the trained economist was far from being satisfied with this situation, at least at the beginning. “I have long resented”, writes Hayek, “being more widely known by what I regarded as a pamphlet for the time than by my strictly scientific work.” But he adds immediately: “After reexamining what I wrote then in the light of some thirty years’ further study of the problems then raised, I no longer do so” (Hayek 1976: xxiv-xxv)
