Example text

America could have been ‘discovered’ by the first Tudor king, Henry VII, had Christopher Columbus’ brother, Bartholomew, been more rhetorically persuasive; the second Tudor king, Henry VIII, later promoted the 12th-century Welsh Prince Madoc as the true ‘discoverer’ so as to legitimize himself as an emperor rather than a mere king and thus escape the papal prohibition on divorce (Kimberley 2014). The de-concentrated power of early modern Europe allowed Columbus to request expeditionary funding from John II of Portugal plus two republics (Genoa and Venice), before succeeding with Ferdinand II of Aragon and Isabella I of Castile.

The University of Michigan formally invited Hayek to pass judgement on Klein. 26 The anti-Semitic Hayek (1978) ‘never sympathized with either macroeconomics or econometrics’: the Klein episode, and Hayek’s role, have not been exhaustively examined (see, for example, Schrecker 1986, 253–255; Brazer 1982, 219–228). In a postscript to Science Jews and Secular Culture Studies in Mid-Twentieth-Century American Intellectual History (1998), David Hollinger (2013) reported that he had been unable to use some evidence because of a restriction that had since expired (Ackley describing Paton’s anti-Semitic statements in a 1979 interview with Marjorie Brazer): Paton’s ‘successful opposition to Klein is central to my discussion of the McCarthy Era at Michigan’.

What we lack is a liberal Utopia, a deed of courage ... the courage to be Utopian. In ‘The Road from Serfdom’, Erik ‘Ritter von’ Kuehnelt-Leddihn (1992) explained: with the exception of Fritz Machlup, the original Austrian School consisted of members of the nobility ... [Hayek] descended from a family ennobled at the end of the eighteenth century by the Holy Roman Emperor. ’ and ‘III’ to the names of their heirs. According to Llewellyn Rockwell Jr. (2008), the co-founder of the Ludwig von Mises Institute, Erik was a Catholic, an Old Liberal, and a trusted advisor to Otto von Habsburg and Cardinal Ratzinger (now Benedict XVI).
