Friedrich August von Hayek Quote: “Competition is like experimentation in science, a discovery process, and it must rely on the self interest of producers, it must allow them to use their knowledge for their purposes, because nobody else possesses the information.”
Friedrich August von Hayek Quote: “We shall not grow wiser before we learn that much that we have done was very foolish.”
