Frederick Hayek Supports “Do It Yourself” Libertarianism

Recently I noted that Jeffrey Tucker‘s term “DIY Libertarianism” very well sums up my preferred strategy on a variety of fronts including entrepreneurship, political reform and others.

Today I noticed that Frederick Hayek has a great quote which perfectly places him as an advocate of the same idea:

“The physicist who is only a physicist can still be a first-class physicist and a most valuable member of society. But nobody can be a great economist who is only an economist – and I am even tempted to add that the economist who is only an economist is likely to become a nuisance if not a positive danger.”
