It is also an important resource for specialists in the history of economic thought, as it constitutes a significant contribution to the literature pertaining to the development of the Austrian School of economics, the progress of liberalism, and Hayek’s economic theories.” (Birsen Filip, History of Economic Thought and Policy, Vol. 2, 2015)
