Forget Ayn Rand, Here's Ryan's True Hero

Coming from NYT Magazine this Sunday: Adam Davidson on "Prime Time for Paul Ryan's Guru."   No, not Ayn Rand.  "Ryan has repeatedly suggested that many of his economic ideas were inspired by the work of Friedrich von Hayek, an awkwardly shy (and largely ignored) economist and philosopher who died in 1992. A few years ago, it was probably possible to fit every living Hayekian in a conference room. Regardless of what happens in November, that will no longer be the case....Many of Ryan’s most famous proposals have clear Hayekian roots."
