Friedrich Hayek and Michael Oakeshott both posited that the English Rule of Law was more conducive to economic liberty than is the continental conception of Rechtsstaat. In this lecture, we will discuss their theories, how both legal traditions developed, and how the economic implications of those traditions support those theories.
