Manhattan Institute Announces Finalists For Hayek Book Prize

February 21, 2019

New York, NY (February 21, 2019)—The Manhattan Institute has announced the list of finalists for the 15th annual Hayek Book Prize. The prize, awarded in New York each year, celebrates authors who best represent the principles of F.A. Hayek. 

The finalists are:

“In a period when socialism has unpredictably reentered national dialogue, it’s all the more important for Hayek to speak up. Through these books, Hayek’s message of markets and their superiority over planning comes to us loud and clear,” said Amity Shlaes, jury chair.

“It is gratifying to see that, after fifteen years of the Hayek Book Prize, we continue to encounter authors dedicated to writing about the tenets of economic and individual liberty,” added Manhattan Institute President Larry Mone.  “We look forward to the next fifteen years and will continue to seek out voices that break through the noise and keep Hayek’s vision front of mind.”

The winner, who will receive a $50,000 award, will be announced in the spring and will deliver the annual Hayek lecture in New York on June 6.

About the Hayek Lecture and Book Prize

Political philosopher and Nobel laureate F. A. Hayek, author of groundbreaking works such as The Road to Serfdom and The Constitution of Liberty, was the key figure in the twentieth century revival of classical liberalism. He was also a formative influence on the Manhattan Institute. When our founder, Sir Antony Fisher, asked how best to reverse the erosion of freedom, Hayek advised him not to begin with politics per se but to fight first on the battlefield of ideas. The Hayek Lecture and Prize affirm and celebrate this mission.
