Ne mislim se razpisati ob rojstnem dnevu Friedricha Hayeka, za počastitev njegovega rojstnega dne bo dovolj nekaj njegovih citatov.
»If socialists understood economics they wouldn’t be socialists.«
»Freedom can be preserved only if it is treated as a supreme principle which must not be sacrificed for particular advantages.«
»All economic activity is carried out through time. Every individual economic process occupies a certain time, and all linkages between economic processes necessarily involve longer or shorter periods of time.«
»The curious task of economics is to demonstrate to men how little they really know about what they imagine the can design.«
»The chief difference [between totalitarian and free countries] is that only the totalitarians appear clearly to know how they want to achieve that result, while the free world has only its past achievements to show, being by its very nature unable to offer any detailed “plan” for further growth.«
»One need not be a prophet to be aware of impending dangers. An accidental combination of experience and interest will often reveal events to one man under aspects which few yet see.«
»I have arrived at the conviction that the neglect by economists to discuss seriously what is really the crucial problem of our time is due to a certain timidity about soiling their hands by going from purely scientific questions into value questions.«
