About this book

F.A. Hayek (1899-1992), the co-leader of the Austrian free market school, embraced the transparently fraudulent assertion made by Donald McCormick, aka Richard Deacon, in The British Connection which accused A.C. Pigou, the co-leader of the Cambridge market failure school, of being a Soviet spy.
