Working after the war, Hayek's writing was very much against the tide of mainstream Keynesian economic thought. But in the 1970s and 1980s - the eras of Thatcherism and Reaganomics - he was championed as a prophet of neo-liberalism by those who were seeking to revolutionize the post-war social consensus. "The Constitution of Liberty" is crucial reading for all those seeking to understand ideas that have become the orthodoxy in the age of the globalized economy.
