Strongly recommend this book to anyone interested in the debate of democracy vs technocracy, and also the case for why all humans should have equal rights.
I enjoyed the book. It makes a good case against authoritarian growth but fails to persuasively show how political freedoms would stimulate growth.
I really love and admire Easterleighs academic work. This book was interesting and I learnt some things. It had some weaker parts though. A large part of the book complains that some of Hayek's points have been overlooked. This strikes me as not a very bad thing, and anyway untrue. The first chapter is a frustrating defence of an argument not yet given. And some of the argument after that depends on equivocation. Still, there is much to be learnt here and some economics history that was new to me.
