2: Hayek’s discussion of the theories of John Maynard Keynes whom he knew well at Cambridge during World War 2.
3: Hayek reviews events of the past 20 years and the recent watershed in economic thought provoked by the resurgence and refinement of classical liberal ideas and the growing influence on public debate around the world.
