Hayek The Road to Serfdom Summary Ü 102 1899 1992 recipient of the Medal of Freedom in 1991 and co winner of the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics in 1974 was a pioneer in monetary theory and the principal proponent of libertarianism in the twentieth centuryOn the first American edition of The Road to SerfdomOne of the most important books of our generation It restates for our time the issue between liberty and authority with the power and rigor of reasoning with which John Stuart Mill stated the issue for his own generation in his great essay On Liberty It is an arresting call to all well intentioned planners and socialists to all those who are sincere democrats and liberals at heart to stop look and listen Henry Hazlitt New York Times Book Review September 1944In the negative part of Professor Hayek's thesis there is a great deal of truth It cannot be said too often at any rate it is not being said nearly often enough that collectivism is not inherently democratic but on the contrary gives to a tyrannical minority such powers as the Spanish Inuisitors never dreamt of George Orwell Collected Essa. There is an old cartoon found here which summarizes the logic of this work rather perfectly Essentially the government gets involved in your life they dictate how you live then they kill you The notions in this text are trifling at bestHayek never confronts the fact that a lack of some centralized body somewhere making decisions for you does not mean an end to governance Clearly businesses govern They also plan To take this power away from a centralized and at least ostensibly publicly accountable body and to diffuse this power throughout the business community is not to rid oneself of governance It simply means that businesses are the governmentIf we are to acknowledge the uite obvious tendency for capital to move toward those with the most capital that is for businesses to develop into monopolies and oligopolies then one might see that Hayek s model accomplishes nothing less than the restoration of the same feudal structures he s supposedly warning againstHis argument if taken to the same disparate conclusions as the one s he takes communism and socialism to would result in the ownership of all land by a handful of oligarchs We would then tend their land for a pittance We would be serfs

Friedrich A. Hayek × 2 Free download Review Û PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free × Friedrich A. Hayek The Road to Serfdom Summary Ü 102 A classic work in political philosophy intellectual and cultural history and economics The Road to Serfdom has inspired and infuriated politicians scholars and general readers for half a century Originally published in England in the spring of 1944 when Eleanor Roosevelt supported the efforts of Stalin and Albert Einstein subscribed lock stock and barrel to the socialist program The Road to Serfdom was seen as heretical for its passionate warning against the dangers of state control over the means of production For F A Hayek the collectivist idea of empowering government with increasing economic control would inevitably lead not to a utopia but to the horrors of nazi Germany and fascist ItalyFirst published by the University of Chicago Press on September 18 1944 The Road to Serfdom garnered immediate attention from the public politicians and scholars alike The first printing of 2000 copies was exhausted instantly and within six months than 30000 were sold In April of 1945 Reader's Digest published a condensed version of the book and soon thereafter the Book. He inspired Milton Friedman There s nothing to add to that it s just making one speechlessAs soon as abstract not measurable highly abstract not concrete concepts and words such as freedom justice right etc are used it s often a highly alarming sign signal and warning that something is going terribly wrong that the author has left reality and entered the spheres of speculation guessing or just doing as if subjective in the best cases just eccentric DIY creative problem solving ideas can be implemented in larger systems or even the world It reminds me of playing Chinese whisperers silent post for two reasons First because those pseudo fringe science wannabe intellectuals are as arrogant as possible while behaving like stubborn kids and second because one begins with a stupid idea that gets copied and modified and mutates to and idiotic tragically real life appliances It s also a bit like a brainstorming a creative techniue an idea constructing session completely getting out of control I ll give it a try Let s say that I am biased and hate capitalism such as Hayek hated socialism without any reason mixed it with pseudo psychology and constructed his crude and inhuman theoriesSo I want anything in the property of the state ban private companies install a system such in China or with communism Does one see how stupid and onesided that is this black and white good and bad evil economy and friendly economy But wait if we instead say that our economic system is as onesided and stupid as communism that s of course unacceptable treason One could produce thousands of stupid fringe theories while misusing social sciences and humanities Oh wait that s permanently done my mistake I ve said most about this topic in my reviews of Roslings FactfulnesshttpswwwgoodreadscomreviewshowPinkers Enlightenment Nowhttpswwwgoodreadscomreviewshowand Friedmans Capitalism and Freedom books are just a repetition of the same yada bla without any accuracy or legitimacySome facepalm uotes I am certain however that nothing has done so much to destroy the juridical safeguards of individual freedom as the striving after this mirage of social justice Although we had been warned by some of the greatest political thinkers of the nineteenth century by Tocueville and Lord Acton that socialism means slavery we have steadily moved in the direction of socialism Wir verdanken den Amerikanern eine gro e Bereicherung der Sprache durch den bezeichnenden Ausdruck weasel word So wie das kleine Raubtier das auch wir Wiesel nennen angeblich aus einem Ei allen Inhalt heraussaugen kann ohne da man dies nachher der leeren Schale anmerkt so sind die Wiesel W rter jene die wenn man sie einem Wort hinzuf gt dieses Wort jedes Inhalts und jeder Bedeutung berauben Ich glaube das Wiesel Wort par excellence ist das Wort sozial Was es eigentlich hei t wei niemand Wahr ist nur da eine soziale Marktwirtschaft keine Marktwirtschaft ein sozialer Rechtsstaat kein Rechtsstaat ein soziales Gewissen kein Gewissen soziale Gerechtigkeit keine Gerechtigkeit und ich f rchte auch soziale Demokratie keine Demokratie ist Because of much talk and discussion about the replication crisis with friends and in general I will add these thoughts to all following nonfiction books dealing with humanities in the future so you might have already seen it Sorry folks this is one of my last rants I am sick and tired of this and want to focus on true science and great fiction instead not this disturbed fairytales for adults who never had the chance to built a free opinion because most of the media they consume to stay informed and get educated avoids any criticism of the current economic systemWithout having read or heard ideas by Chomsky Monbiot Klein Ken Robinson Monbiot Peter Singer William McDonough Ziegler Colin Crouch Jeremy Rifkin David Graeber John Perkins and others humans will always react to people like me condemning the manipulation Hayek was practicing with terrifying success with anger and refusalThese authors don t hide aspects of the truth and describe the real state of the world that should be read instead of epic facepalms like this They don t predict the future and preach the one only the true way ignoring anything like black swans coincidences or the for each small child logical fact that nobody knows what will happen and collect exactly the free available data people such as Hayek wanted to ignore foreverSome words about the publication crisis that even have some positive points at the end so that this whole thing is not that depressingOne could call the replication crisis the viral fake news epidemic of many fields of science that was a hidden chronic disease over decades and centuries and has become extremely widespread during the last years since the first critics began vaccinating against it provoking virulent counterarguments I don t know how else this could end than with nothing else than paradigm shifts discovering many anachronisms and a better fact and number based research with many control instances before something of an impact on the social policy gets accepted A few points that led to it I had an intuitive feeling regarding this for years but the replication crisis proofed that there are too many interconnections of not strictly scientific fields such as economics and politics with many humanities Look already some of the titles are biased towards a positive or negative attitude but thinking too optimistic is the same mistake as being too pessimistic it isn t objective any and one can be instrumentalized without even recognizing it In natural sciences theoretical physicists astrophysicists physicians that were friends of a certain idea will always say that there is the option of change that a discovery may lead to a new revolution and that their old work has to be reexamined So in science regarding the real world the specialists are much open to change than in some humanities isn t that strange It would be as if one would say that all humans are representative similar that there are no differences But it s not each time a study is made there are different people opinions so many coincidences and uniue happenings that it s impossible to reproduce it Scandinavia vs the normal world The society people live in makes happiness not theoretical not definitive concepts One can manipulate so many parameters in those studies that the result can be extremely positive or negative just depending on what who funds the study and does the study wants as results One could use the studies she he needs to create an optimistic or a pessimistic book and many studies about human nature are redundant repetitive or biased towards a certain result often an optimistic outcome or spectacular groundbreaking results Do you know who does that too Statistics economics politics and faith I wish I could be a bit optimistic than realistic but not hard evidence based stuff is a bit of a no go if it involves practical applications especially if there is the danger of not working against big problems by doing as if they weren t there A few points that lead away from it 1 Tech2 Nordic model3 Open data open government 4 Blockchains cryptocurrencies uantum computing to make each financial transaction transparent and traceable5 Points mentioned in the Wiki article6 It must be horrible for the poor scientists who work in those fields and are now suffering because the founding fathers used theories and concepts that have nothing to do with real science They worked hard to build a career to just find out that the predecessors integrated methods that couldn t work in other systems let s say an evolving computer program or a machine or a human body or anywhere except in ones imagination They are truly courageous to risk criticism because of the humanities bashing wave that won t end soon As in so many fields it are a few black sheep who ruin everything for many others and the progressive a young scientist is the he is in danger of getting smashed between a hyper sensible public awareness and the old anachronism shepherds avoiding anything progressive with the danger of a paradigm shift or even a relativization of the field they dedicated their career to There has to be strict segregation between theories and ideas and applications in real life so that anything can be researched but not used to do crazy thingsThe worst bad science practice includes from Wikipedia taken from the article about the replication crisis The replication crisis or replicability crisis or reproducibility crisis is as of 2020 an ongoing methodological crisis in which it has been found that many scientific studies are difficult or impossible to replicate or reproduce The replication crisis affects the social sciences and medicine most severely2 The inability to replicate the studies of others has potentially grave conseuences for many fields of science in which significant theories are grounded on unreproducible experimental work The replication crisis has been particularly widely discussed in the field of psychology and in medicine where a number of efforts have been made to re investigate classic results3 A 2016 poll of 1500 scientists reported that 70% of them had failed to reproduce at least one other scientist s experiment 50% had failed to reproduce one of their own experiments8 In 2009 2% of scientists admitted to falsifying studies at least once and 14% admitted to personally knowing someone who did4 Psychological research is on average afflicted with low statistical power5 Firstly uestionable research practices RPs have been identified as common in the field18 Such practices while not intentionally fraudulent involve capitalizing on the gray area of acceptable scientific practices or exploiting flexibility in data collection analysis and reporting often in an effort to obtain a desired outcome Examples of RPs include selective reporting or partial publication of data reporting only some of the study conditions or collected dependent measures in a publication optional stopping choosing when to stop data collection often based on statistical significance of tests p value rounding rounding p values down to 005 to suggest statistical significance file drawer effect nonpublication of data post hoc storytelling framing exploratory analyses as confirmatory analyses and manipulation of outliers either removing outliers or leaving outliers in a dataset to cause a statistical test to be significant18192021 A survey of over 2000 psychologists indicated that a majority of respondents admitted to using at least one RP18 False positive conclusions often resulting from the pressure to publish or the author s own confirmation bias are an inherent hazard in the field reuiring a certain degree of skepticism on the part of readers26 Secondly psychology and social psychology in particular has found itself at the center of several scandals involving outright fraudulent research7 Thirdly several effects in psychological science have been found to be difficult to replicate even before the current replication crisis Replications appear particularly difficult when research trials are pre registered and conducted by research groups not highly invested in the theory under uestioning8 Scrutiny of many effects have shown that several core beliefs are hard to replicate A recent special edition of the journal Social Psychology focused on replication studies and a number of previously held beliefs were found to be difficult to replicate25 A 2012 special edition of the journal Perspectives on Psychological Science also focused on issues ranging from publication bias to null aversion that contribute to the replication crises in psychology26 In 2015 the first open empirical study of reproducibility in psychology was published called the Reproducibility Project Researchers from around the world collaborated to replicate 100 empirical studies from three top psychology journals Fewer than half of the attempted replications were successful at producing statistically significant results in the expected directions though most of the attempted replications did produce trends in the expected directions9 Many research trials and meta analyses are compromised by poor uality and conflicts of interest that involve both authors and professional advocacy organizations resulting in many false positives regarding the effectiveness of certain types of psychotherapy10 The reproducibility of 100 studies in psychological science from three high ranking psychology journals44 Overall 36% of the replications yielded significant findings p value below 005 compared to 97% of the original studies that had significant effects The mean effect size in the replications was approximately half the magnitude of the effects reported in the original studies11 Highlighting the social structure that discourages replication in psychology Brian D Earp and Jim A C Everett enumerated five points as to why replication attempts are uncommon505112 Independent direct replications of others findings can be time consuming for the replicating researcher13 Replications are likely to take energy and resources directly away from other projects that reflect one s own original thinking14 Replications are generally harder to publish in large part because they are viewed as being unoriginal15 Even if replications are published they are likely to be seen as bricklaying exercises rather than as major contributions to the fieldContinued in comments
