When the world was mired in the Great Depression, two thinkers battled over what to do. John Maynard Keynes argued that governments should create the demand that the market did not. Friedrich Hayek argued that the free market would correct itself. Keynes won, but Hayek inspired a backlash four decades later. A backlash whose consequences we still live with today. We’re returning to Capitalism with the great Keynes v. Hayek debate!
