And who the hell is the guy on the right anyway?
Find out at a seminar I’ll be leading tomorrow, Tuesday 25th September from 12.30-1.30pm in Seminar Room 4, on the 1st Floor of the J.G. Crawford Bldg – the Public Policy School adjacent to the famous Shine Dome in Acton.
Here’s an outline:
- Why didnt Australia make the keyless car?
- Regulation Review
- Enduring problems with Regulation
- Hayeks critique of Scientism
- Toyotas critique of Taylorism/Fordism
- Regulation review as regulatory Taylorism
- Some proposed (partial) responses
Pre-reading of Hayek is here. It’s a good read, though rather long and in some ways unnecessarily erudite for the purposes to which it’s being put in the seminar. Chapter X “Engineers and Planners” is a good extract to read – whether you’re coming or not!
If you want a ready comparison between Frieda and Friedrich Hayek, you can probably do worse than this assessment.
PS: Of course that last sentence is nonsense. I meant Salma Hayek, though managed to conjure up an alternative first name presumably from Friedrich and from the name of the person she played in a movie about Frida Kahlo.
