If you’ve never read Friedrich Hayek’s The Road to Serfdom … that’s okay, most people haven’t. But do yourself a favor and at least read the Classics Comic Book version I’m copying from here, The Road to Serfdom (in Cartoons). The Hayek cult is just as silly as the Elon cult or the Uncle Warren cult or the crypto cult, and I’m not saying that Hayek was some Nostradamus. But I AM saying that Hayek was a really smart guy who believed with all his heart in small-l liberal virtues and keenly observed the politics of the world the last time we got into such a global mess.

We’re on Cartoon #9 today, well on our way to Cartoon #10.

We’ve used these cartoons a couple of times in Epsilon Theory notes, first in “Virtue Signaling, Or Why Clinton is In Trouble”, and more recently in Rusty Guinn’s “The Many Moods of Macro”.
