This paper explores the political economy of F.A. Hayek with emphasis on the continued relevance of his work for contemporary scholars. The paper focuses 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, the paper concludes by discussing the contemporary implications of Hayek's political economy.
