file: hayek5 DOES SOCIALISM LEAD TO DICTATORSHIP? Discussion Questions on Hayek How much do we really have to worry about Hayek’s nightmare scenario? 1 Not available any real good tests of Hayek’s basic argument. 2 One problem with testing Hayek’s basic argument is that I can’t think of any democracy which has seriously even tried the kind of central economic planning that Hayek was worried about. 3 Every democratic government tries some degree of social and economic planning. 4 Some have done more than others. 5 But it is not clear to me that there is any real-world example in which a democracy has become a dictatorship because of its efforts to engage in central economic planning. 6 It is certainly the case that many democracies have been turned into dictatorships. 7 But is this because the democracy tried central economic planning? 8 Or is government involvement in the economy only one of many factors contributing to the democracy’s downfall?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
