Guess what the number #1 book on Amazon is. Frederick Hayek’s Road to Serfdom!
Unfortunately, this doesn’t demonstrate a new national surge of interest in Austrian economics. It mainly demonstrates the power of Glenn Beck and his unusually successful 5pm Fox News TV show. Beck devoted his show yesterday to Road to Serfdom, interviewed an articulate speaker from the Mises Institute, and the surge of sales on Amazon is the happy result.
