Friedrich A. von Hayek on Regulatory Economics - Dictionary of Arguments

Mause I 377
Regulatory Economics/Hayek: Competition and regulatory economic thinking is based on the primacy of the market as a decentralised coordination mechanism of supply and demand. This is due to the proof of the impossibility of centralised coordination of individual supply and demand behaviour.(1)(2)
A decentralised coordination mechanism is therefore needed to manage scarce goods.
