"In a previous column, I wrote about how the market promotes diversity by allowing us to use our different comparative advantages to benefit ourselves. I also noted how trade promotes the ends of those who are concerned about diversity by facilitating our contact with a wider array of people, independent of their race, ethnicity, or national identity. I want to pick up on some of those themes this week and extend them in a slightly more theoretical direction by talking about F. A. Hayek’s vision of classical liberalism and how it relates to diversity." (02/10/11)
