    Hayekism is a right-wing libertarian ideology based off Friedrich Hayek's ideas. He believes the state should have minimal involvement in the economy aside from basic public services, and that currency should be denationalized and not be a public matter, thus the state can't intervene in the creation of money. He's also known for being a frenemy of Keynes.png Keynesianism.
    He thinks that Soc.png Socialism and collectivist ideas, in general, are a step backward and that western society has or at least should've already overcome such mentality. He also believes that each reform which brings society closer to Socialism puts it on a slippery slope towards totalitarianism.




    He's basically Clib.png Classical Liberalism mixed with Austrobert.png Austrian School but with some specific beliefs, mostly in monetary theory (he likes free banking but thinks that it can't be implemented for pragmatic reasons)

    He advocates for very minimal government intervention, but also allows some basic public services and social benefits, preferably done by local government (i.e. education, healthcare, welfare).


    1. Trade cycle theory
    Hayek’s earliest contribution was his development of a business cycle theory that built on the earlier work by Swedish economist Knut Wicksell and von Mises. While Hayek’s trade cycle theory, articulated during the Great Depression, has relatively few defenders today, some aspects of it remain valuable.

    2. Economics and knowledge
    The economics of information is now an important area of economics, and many theorists (among them, Leonid Hurwicz, Sanford Grossman, and Joseph Stiglitz) credit Hayek with being among the first to emphasize the role of market prices in conveying information.

    Personality and Behaviour

    Ancapf.png Ancaps and Minarchist.png Minarchists constantly make fun of Hayek, calling him a socialist because he wants a little more government. He also usually agrees with everything an Ancap says but don't like the conclusion the Ancaps have come to, eliminate the state completely.

    And he's constantly freaking out and saying that the current leaders are as bad as Nazi.png Nazis because they don't promote laissez-faire capitalism.
