Why Hayek failed colossally and Keynes and Laski succeeded
A few weeks ago I had critiqued Hayek’s view that think tanks are the way to go to promote liberty.
As I study Laski a bit more, it becomes further clear why Hayek was TOTALLY WRONG on this.
Laski was actively involved in politics – he was chairman of the Labour Party in UK and actively influenced Nehru.
Keynes was actively involved in politics.
ONLY those who actively engage in politics leave a legacy. The others are good students but useless in terms of influencing the world.
