He injected 4 Hayek references into some random ass comment on a blog post on China.
“Liberal” in China pretty much means what it means in Continental Europe and what it means in political philosophy, i.e. what Hayek called “classical liberalism”. Right?
China has a Hayek society and things like Hayek’s _The Constitution of Liberty_ were some of the first serious works in political economy published in China after the liberalization.
So they’ve acquired their language from original sources (Hayek’s _The Constitution of Liberty_ has many traditional (pre-FDR) uses of the word “liberal”.)
