Time: 6.00pm
Venue: Old Theatre, Old Building

Friedrich August von Hayek is one of the most influential social philosophers of the 20th century. His early works as an economist earned him a chair at LSE, which he held from 1931 to 1950. In 1947, Hayek founded the influential neo-liberal Mont Pelerin Society. He was awarded the Nobel prize in 1974 as a direct result of his LSE work.

Roger W Garrison is LSE's first Hayek Fellow. He is professor of economics at Auburn University, Alabama. In 2001, he published Time and Money: the macroeconomics of capital structure.
