Ayn Rand Called Hayek a "Compromiser"

In 1961, when Friedrich A. Hayek was visiting Cornell, he spoke at a political economy class. Here he recounted an encounter that he had with Ayn Rand at a party.

Hayek said:

“We had a very brief exchange. She swelled in anger and spun away, remaining only long enough to say, ‘You are a compromiser.’”
