Example text

Like many of his generation, Hayek was profoundly affected by what seemed to be an end to an older social order; and this, together with a passionate concern to better the lot of the poor, led him towards what he later described as a form of Fabian socialism, and to the wish to study economics. All this drives home the fact that Hayek was not born a classical liberal. Rather, he became one. But how did this occur, under what circumstances, and why? At the University of Vienna, Hayek was first attracted to study with Othmar Spann.

In Wieser’s view, economics should operate first with over-simplifying models, and then, gradually, bring in social and institutional factors. Liberal economists, in his view, simply read economic lessons off the initial stage of economic investigation, forgetting that the picture that these ideas convey is the product of an over-simplifying methodological device. Commenting on his own discussion of the impact of competition upon production, Wieser says:22 Our exposition has given undue weight to the apparent effects of competition on the progress of production.

Menger characterized the way in which we understand these parts, however, as involving our grasping the essence of the phenomena in question. 20 While his relations with the older historical economists are a matter of some interpretative controversy, there is no question about the fact that Menger became embroiled with the leader of the younger branch of the historical school, Gustav Schmoller, in the Methodenstreit. This was a ponderous dispute about the methods of the social sciences, which generated more heat than light.
