Introduction by Armen Alchian
The idea of capturing visually and orally the personality of Friedrich von Hayek, 1974 Nobel laureate, was so attractive that when the Earhart Foundation agreed to fund such an arrangement, the Pacific Academy for Advanced Studies was proud to undertake the pleasant task. No attempt was made in these interviews to restate or review Hayek's staggering intellectual accomplishments or his influence on contemporary understanding of social, political, and economic events.
«Keynes was very capable of rapidly changing his opinion. In fact, he was already, when I talked to him the last time, very critical of his pupils who in the postwar period were still agitating for inflation.»
Friedrich A. Hayek
