Friedrich August von Hayek is one of the best economists in the 20th century. He was born on 8/5/1899 in Vienna, and he died on 23/3/1992 in Freiburg.
Hayek is popular mainly because of his theories of classical liberalism. Also, he is known because of his book “The Road to Slavery”, his Nobel economic prize in 1974, and because he has been a professor at Chicago University.
I began to admire him when I heard of one of his books and search him on Google. Also, I think he is a great personality because of the Nobel prize and affected the political opinions of a lot of people worldwide.
Summarizing Hayek is one great economical theorist and I admire his work. I recommend his books and that you learn about his story regardless of your political beliefs.
