A Tiger by the Tail: The Keynesian Legacy of Inflation

A Tiger by the Tail: The Keynesian Legacy of Inflation. A 40 Years’ Running Commentary on Keynesianism by F. A. Hayek. Compiled and introduced by Sudha R. Shenoy. London: Institute of Economic Affairs (Hobart Paperback #4), 1972

Excerpt from Introduction:

“The small book you are holding in your hands is unique. It is perhaps the finest introduction to the thought of a major thinker ever published in the discipline of economics. What makes it unique is the fact that it comprises selections and short excerpts from a broad range of Hayek’s works written over a span of 40 years. Despite its broad coverage the book is amazingly compact and coherent, seamlessly integrating the main themes from Hayek’s writings on the money, capital, business cycles, and international monetary systems. Furthermore, although it mainly uses Hayek’s own words, some from his more technical works, it has been arranged and compiled by the late Sudha Shenoy in a way that makes it comprehensible to the layperson and a student but can also be read with profit by the professional economist and teacher.”
