The historical analysis upon which this book depends amounts to nothing than extremely poor scholarship masuerading as thoughtful contrarianism Hayek s conflation of Nazism with Socialism merely because they have similar names in German is an example of stupidity on the level of mistaking the PATRIOT Act for patriotism or the Ministry of Peace for peacefulness This distracting error is unfortunately the foundation of the entirety of his argument His theory of authoritarianism consists of extrapolations from misplaced assumptions about Nazi Germany and disproven projections about the direction the US Britain are heading in the post war era His uaint economic theory tells us little about contemporary authoritarian regimes and even less about modern social democracy In sum don t bother

The Road to Serfdom review ↠ 103 Friedrich A. Hayek Ê 3 review summary The Road to Serfdom “Hayek menggunakan ilmu ekonomi untuk menyiasat minda manusia menggunakan pengetahuan ya. I could be wrong but surely not even the greatest fans of Hayek could believe this is a particularly nuanced book The central thesis is that everyone that disagrees with Hayek is either a totalitarian or someone who is inadvertently leading society down the road towards totalitarianism This doesn t only include Marxists and Fascists who Hayek euates as identical nor even members of the Labour party in Britain who might be considered fellow travellers but even many of the younger members of the Conservative party too You see what I mean about nuance then perhaps Not only is everyone else wrong but any differences between them are as nothing when compared with what binds them in common There literally can be no nuanceDecades later Maggie Thatcher would flung down a copy of Hayek s The Constitution of Liberty during a meeting with members of her party and yell This is what we believe It fits of course Both held that there was no alternative and that any deviation from the one true path inevitably leads to destruction and serfdom Freedom is somewhat oddly defined if there is ultimately only one available choiceThe later preference for forced choices by radical free market types is perhaps one of the most potent current criticisms of this book Worth reading in this context is William Davies The Limits of Neoliberalism particularly in relation to Nudge theory As the book Nudge makes clear while it takes free market ideas very seriously it also believes that people might make better decisions if they were nudged towards them This ought to otherwise seem problematic if you really believed what Hayek says here You see central to his thesis is that such an understanding of what is best for others isn t possible in fact it is fundamentally impossible The thing that makes capitalism and radical free market capitalism in particular such a fantastic system is the fact that experts are kept away from decision about what might make the lives of others better It is hard to no think that Hayek would view these nudges as little than a further step down the road to serfdomThere are infinitely better criticisms of this book than I m going to provide in this little review Some of those include Never Let a Serious Crisis Go to Waste and Capitalist Realism Why I find this book particularly terrifying is that it really has a distasteful understanding of what freedom means Freedom here is the elimination of every kind of safety net it means dog eat dog it means the war of all against each it means an almost ludicrous extreme of competition because only in this is the purity of individualism able to be assured Any restrictions on individualism is understood as inevitably leading to fascismcommunismsocial democracy all of which are seen as basically identical he literally says as much here Society is understood as a kind of information exchange where money is the chief form of data and therefore money needs to be protected from any distortion say imposed inflation since money or prices rather allow everyone in society to know which choices they should make that will best suit their needs The reason why any form of planning is ineffective and ultimately evil is because the whole system is so insanely complex that any form of centralised planning inevitably introduces inefficiencies to the entire system This makes the whole system worse for everyone but since the planners benefit by keeping their own jobs regardless of the poor outcomes of their plans those inefficiencies compound People then are forced to accept products they do not want and this leads to further distortions in the proper price signals within the system which then further multiplies inefficiencies And because there is no way of seeing what a efficient system would look like outside the plan the plan is still held to be the most efficient organisation of the systemRather than planning a system based on the anarchy of economic activity is the only system capable of meeting the needs of the whole of society and of producing freedom at the same time Since there is no central planner individuals are able to understand the messages contained in the highly situated contexts they live within and from within the prices of good they observe and that means they are able to act in ways that meet their needs from within those circumstances The system is self regulating because competition ultimately leads to a situation where the people who are most efficient and best at meeting the needs of those around them are the only people who will succeed The system also can only exist on increased freedom to the extent that freedom can be euated with economic anarchy since any restriction on this freedom will necessarily be imposed upon it from outside by the dreaded planners who we have already decided will lead us to fascist communist collectivism Any individual may end up crushed under the driving wheel of progress in fact this is inevitable and necessary for risk cannot be mitigated in the system without distorting the system as a whole And since competition is the engine of progress and competition means winners and losers then the economic euivalent of Darwinian natural selection is however regrettable inevitableThus Hayek presents his vision splendid of unfettered free markets His expectation of course is that although some people will inevitably be crushed under foot overall most people will be better off under this system than under any other system capable of operating There are occasional nods to the benefits of democracy but it isn t at all clear how democracy can be exempt from also being seen as yet another collectivist project that undermines his radical individualism Thatcher s there is no society only individuals rings in your ears while reading this Certainly Hayek imposes stringent limitations upon democracy democracy clearly can t place any limits on the radical free market he proposesPart of me wants to say that after four decades of living in lock step with Hayek s ideal of laissez faire capitalism and the gross ineuality that has produced and the ecological suicide we are gormlessly heading toward that perhaps some of those who yelled the loudest that radical free market economics would lead to the promised land should be a little embarrassed now That certainly has not proven to be the case As Capitalist Realism makes all too clear the GFC only proved to his followers that Hayek s ideas were not implemented stringently enough And that is the beauty here Hayek s ideas are so over the top so utopian or dystopian rather that it is impossible for them to ever be fully implemented even in Chile under a dictator and so there will always an escape clause Even after the Thatcher nightmare there was an escape clause that said if only his ideas had been consistently followed I doubt we will move on from these ideas any time soon they form a solid plank of our current received wisdom our axiomatic truths Those who benefit from such ideas are rich beyond imagining and they hold so much power with their wealth that it isn t in the least bit clear to me how an opposition to these views would be possible to be sustained And so we will continue to march proudly over the cliff each in turn proclaiming our freedom even as we begin our descent under the iron clad laws of gravity As someone or other much wiser than me once said it is easier to imagine the end of the world than the end of capitalism I guess therein lies Hayek s greatest legacy

The Road to Serfdom review ↠ 103 Friedrich A. Hayek Ê 3 review summary The Road to Serfdom Ng telah dikumpulnya untuk melondeh sifat totalitarian sosialisme dan untuk menjelaskan ba. 60 stars On my list of All Time Favorite Books One of the most important books ever written and most concise brilliant scathing and impressive argument against the planned economy that has been or likely ever will be written Hayek while always being respectful to the adherents of the idea that state control over resources and goals is the right approach nevertheless absolutely destroys each and every argument and rationale alluded to by such people His general thesis that socialism communism fascism will inevitably lead to totalitarianism and the loss of freedom for the individual is demonstrated without skipping logical steps or leaping to a conclusion not supported by the preceding argument It is powerful powerful stuff His conclusion is that the only way to truly create and just and free society is to re adopt the classic liberalism of the 19th century closely linked today with libertarianism Government should be limited and exist only to 1 protect the people in time of war or national emergency and 2 provide the rule of law which means basic rules that apply eually to everyone ieno special treatment no unfair treatmentand that do not change and allow competition and the market to decide the success or failure of individuals This does not guaranty anyone success or failure but rather guaranties everyone the opportunity for success or failure While such a system is not without flaws that may at times lead to abuses that people of good conscience may find objectionable Hayek makes a powerful case that it is the only system that provides the opportunity for success to everyone Any change to the system that modifies this ie grants special assistance or rules to benefit one group necessarily hurts another group and this kind of intervention leads to the determination by a small group of people without all necessary factual evidence as no group can ever be fully informed of all of the variables that go into how a society operates based on its opinion of what the correct result should be This imposing of the values and morals which all opinion is derived from of one person or a group people on society necessarily is done at the expense of the morals and values held by others Hayek argues that such an action is fundamentally flawed HIGHEST POSSIBLE RECOMMENDATION
