Awesome--"Mr. Anonymous and the Not-so-spontaneous birth of the Libertarian Movement"

Here, where it's set out that Friedrich Hayek's career was basically subsidized by a foundation attached to the University of Chicago, itself funded as a pro-capitalist institution by the Rockefeller family,  because no reputable institution of higher learning would recognize him as a decent economist. Also Ludwig von Mises. Unfortunately, the writer doesn't provide enough references to check his work. The focus, though, is on how a rich investor created a fund that through its actions brought Austrian Economics to the United States and created a network of persons and institutions that gave birth to the modern U.S. libertarian movement.
