Scholarly Comments on Academic Economics

Trygve J. B. Hoff

The bio below comes from a published article and may now be dated.

Trygve Hoff (1895–1982) graduated in economics from the University of Oslo in 1916, became an economic commentator for Norwegian newspapers, and in 1938 completed a doctoral dissertation on economic calculation under socialism. After the Second World War he became somewhat of a classical liberal voice in the wilderness in Norway. Hoff was a founding member of the Mont Pelerin Society in 1947. In his magazine he published many articles and criticized restrictions imple­mented by the dominant Labour Party.
