  • The Crisis of Capitalism as spoken here is the exposure of Crony Capitalism involving Government selecting favorites and backing them with easy capital! This ultimately leads to Central Government Control of Markets and People. There is very little Crisis of Free Market Capitalism if Government controls are rather mute and on the sidelines with moderate rule of law and fair regulations!

  • HE DID. If you really want I could get you references. He predicted the housing bubble and resulting financial crisis years before. Never mind, I don't suppose you have read him. All I can say in Hayek's favor is he at least saw the need for an NHS and was more honest than other neoliberal influences such as Friedman (for instance admitting there was no link between the free market and democracy)
