Today would have been Friedrich Hayek’s 114th birthday. Hayek won the Nobel Prize for Economics in 1974 and is best known for his defense of classical liberalism and free-market capitalism against socialist and collectivist thought. He is the celebrated author of numerous books and essays including The Road to Serfdom, The Constitution of Liberty, The Use of Knowledge in Society, and The Fatal Conceit: The Errors of Socialism, in which he wrote:

"A society that does not recognise that each individual has values of his own which he is entitled to follow can have no respect for the dignity of the individual and cannot really know freedom." —Friedrich Hayek
