His latest book, to be published late this year, is The Fatal Conceit. Hayek, who will be 85 years old this fall, won the Nobel Prize in economics in 1974.

Prof. Hayek was recently interviewed at the University of Freiburg in Germany by James U. Blanchard III, chairman of the National Committee for Monetary Reform and a member of the Cato Institute’s Board of Directors.
