    1. Daniel says:

      Hayek's rejection of social justice is mostly based on very simple economic theories and where it goes beyond that it is little more than an opinion piece that is neither fair nor necessarily consistent. He argues that social justice is impossible to clearly define and that therefore, politicians won't know where to stop, but will be under pressure from interest groups to more and more severe intervention. It is not much of an exaggeration to summarise his warning as a claim that everything is a [...]

    2. Otto Lehto says:

      I have reviewed the other volumes elsewhere. I think they all support each other, but the second volume is perhaps the one that is the most controversial - and also most repetitive of the stuff he already said in Constitution of Liberty, which I still think is Hayek's best work.Volume 2 is primarily a negative book: a critique of the notion of "social justice." Hayek argues that a complex market society, where individuals are free to pursue their own ends, cannot and should not have a unified co [...]

    3. Azriel says:

      Hayek mixes a few sections of eminently quotable ideas about the inability to determine Justice by a non-totalitarian society, into a work that generally is so dense that it has, in the words of Robert Coram (about another writer) "the specific gravity of Plutonium". This still is an excellent reminded that Hayek was, like Adam Smith before him, as much a moral philosopher as a market philosopher.

    4. Eugene Kernes says:

      'The Mirage of Social Justice' is a great book which describes how the term 'Justice' is used inappropriately. Justice can only look at actions of particular individuals, not a spontaneous order of events which were not determined by direction of an individual. When those who are hurt by condition use the phrase 'unjust', they can manipulate the authority to provide for their ends by taking away resources from those who gained. When an authority uses the term 'social justice', they inevitably ta [...]

    6. Judge says:

      I'm a Hayek zealot, so of course I loved the book. It confirms - and demonstrates very persuasively - what I have long intuitively believed: "social justice" is a completely meaningless expression.

    7. Eric Stein says:

      Law and governance having been dealt with, Hayek turns to the chimera of social justice.
