FATAL CONCEITS? Edwin Feulner pens a tribute to Friedrich Hayek's Road to Serfdom. In the interest of fact-checking, I believe Milton and Rose Friedman's Free to Choose is also a best seller, and the various editions of Paul Samuelson's Economics would qualify but for the distinction between trade books and text books in the league tables.

Julian at Hit and Run makes a related tribute to Hayek, in light of a complaint against the attitude, prominent in some circles, that there is a "belief" in the power of markets more akin to a belief in a Higher Power than akin to an interpretation of actually existing evidence.
