Warning! Economics Ahead!

As stated previously, my interest in economics has been aroused and I wanted to capitalize on that interest (pun) by reading a little on the subject. After reading several articles and listening to and watching several speeches and interviews, I found that I preferred the views of Frederich Hayek over those of John Maynard Keynes. However, other than the random quote here and there by one of the two, I had never truly read anything written by either of them. So, in pursuit of learning more of what the man I was agreeing with had actually written and said, I have spent the better part of the last month slowly working my way through "The Road to Serfdom" by F.A. Hayek.

Without having read anything by Keynes, it is fairly safe for me to say that I agree with Hayek on his views of socialism, totalitarianism, collectivism and progressivism, as well as those on economics. Over the next 3 weeks, I will be presenting one quote every weekday from the book that I found interesting, intriguing or thought-provoking. I have not provided any commentary along with the quote so that the reader might digest the thought without any bias from me getting in the way. You will be able to find the entire collection here (Hayek quotes) after they have been posted.

Also, I found this video entertaining and informative and thought you might as well:
