Abstract:     
This paper explores the political economy of F.A. Hayek with emphasis on the continued relevance of his work for contemporary scholars. We focus on the theme of coordination throughout Hayek’s research program. This general theme can be traced from Hayek’s technical economics up through his later writings in political philosophy. After considering Hayek’s major works in political and legal theory, we conclude by discussing the contemporary implications of Hayek’s political economy. Specifically, we discuss eight areas where modern economists should pay close attention to the main lessons and themes in Hayek’s writings.
