The mind’s classi‹catory apparatus is itself the product of past experience. He reminds his readers, though, that “[e]xperience can never teach us that any particular kind of structure has properties which do not follow from the de‹nition (or the way we construct it)” (Hayek 1948b, 74). In other words, he resists the notion that experience will eventually move us closer to the truth of the objective world. Hayek rejects all attempts, empiricist and rationalist, to ground knowledge on objective facts or transcendent reason.
For Pareto, technology and resource availability were objective factors. , 414–15). Neoclassical economics reduces market outcomes to given preferences (subjective data) and given technology and resource endowments (objective data). The market performs the task of articulating all of these “givens” into a state of equilibrium, an equilibrium that maximizes ef‹ciency, that is, net gains from trade. Hayek, in contrast, insists quite forcefully that preferences, technology, and resource endowments are all discovered or created in the market process.
Second (and closely related to his ‹rst criticism), Hayek maintains that under Lange’s model, socialist managers will have little or no incentive to take advantage of unique circumstances within their ‹rms that might reduce production costs. Lange does not recognize this problem, because he sees technological knowledge as objective knowledge that is visible to anyone who looks for it. In reality, it is not easy to monitor whether managers are actually following the planning board’s instructions to produce at minimum cost.
