Late Tuesday night, F.A. Hayek’s “Road to Serfdom” is the #1 Bestseller on Amazon (this afternoon I think it was ranked about 200-300). There’s a reason: the book was the subject of Glenn Beck’s show today.
Sometimes it’s hard to figure out Glenn Beck. One day he is (ridiculously) calling Cass Sunstein “the most dangerous man in America.” Another day he is teaching his audience about Hayek’s “Road to Serfdom.” Go figure.
BTW, Hayek once lived in the same building in which I have an apartment (without searching old Chicago phone books, I can’t determine which apartment he occupied).
