Theodore Burczak’s Socialism after Hayek is the 2007 winner of the Smith Center Annual Prize in Austrian Economics.

Socialism after Hayek has been trumpeted as a “stimulating book” in the pages of the Review of Austrian Economics.

“Very deep” gushes Steve Horwitz, the organizer of a conference at the Institute for Humane Studies to promote this latest advance in Austrian Economics.

Peter J. Boettke wrote:
Theodore A. Burczak's Socialism after Hayek is a thoroughly researched and thoughtful examination not only of the ideological debate that framed the twentieth century, but of Hayek's intellectual framework. Burczak hopes for an economic framework that is both humanistic in its approach and humanitarian in its concern while being grounded in good reasons. The book should be on the reading list of every comparative political economist and in particular anyone who wants to take Hayek seriously, including those who would like to push Hayek's classical liberal politics toward the left in the twenty-first century. Burczak has made an outstanding contribution to the fields of political and economic thought and to Hayek studies in particular.

A brilliant, fair-minded approach to Marx, Hayek, Sen, and Nussbaum yields a needed socialist vision for the twenty-first century.


I have written a short review of Burczak’s Socialism after Hayek.

Have I given this “needed socialist vision for the twenty-first century” a fair and accurate critique? Let me hear your opinion!

I'm not sure why anyone should desire to do this - most governments are managing to push leftist economics on their citizens quite successfully and don't need the help.
