The Road to Serfdom–Illustrated!

Thanks to CEI colleague Gary Howard for sending along The Road to Serfdom in Cartoons; I’d forgotten all about this capsule version of Hayek’s masterwork.

It’s worth a read when we live in a world plagued all at once not just by a financial crisis and bailout, but by what the Wall Street Journal calls tax-and-spend “Obamanomics” from one candidate and a sweeping, trillion-dollar-plus cap-and-trade energy program by another; an arrogant United Nations agenda to restructure the global economy around green technology and a global “New Deal”; and “professors” united in an appeal to “put price tags on nature in a radical economic rethink to protect everything from coral reefs to rainforests.”

Hayek warned us about planners and their consequences; Decades after the publication of that book, we find no shortage of the breed.
