Think Freely Media presents Common Sense with Paul Jacob

F. A. Hayek

“[T]he Nobel Prize confers on an individual an authority which in economics no man ought to possess.

“This does not matter in the natural sciences. Here the influence exercised by an individual is chiefly an influence on his fellow experts; and they will soon cut him down to size if he exceeds his competence.

“But the influence of the economist that mainly matters is an influence over laymen: politicians, journalists, civil servants and the public generally.”

F. A. Hayek, speech at the Nobel Banquet, December 10, 1974.
