Knowledge and Coordination

Daniel B. Klein

Oxford University Press

This chapter provides an autobiographical narration of Daniel B. Klein, which discusses how Klein’s volume on the liberal interpretation of knowledge and coordination materialized. Growing up, Klein resented going to school. But through his classmate, who gave him a profound explanation as to why the school system is disagreeable, he acquired an idea of how to make sense of the social world and helped him see schooling as a public-policy issue. In college, Klein dwelled on the principles and formulation of liberal economics and focused on the works of Friedrich Hayek and Israel Kirzner.

Keywords:   Daniel B. Klein, social world, liberal economics, Friedrich Hayek, Israel Kirzner
