‘Catallaxy’ is a word that the great libertarian philosopher and economist Friedrich Hayek coined from the Greek verb “katallattein”, which means not only “to exchange” but also “to admit in the community” and “to change from enemy into friend” (F.A. von Hayek, Law, Legislation and Liberty, Vol 2, 1976, pp. 108-109).

Catallaxy the blog (also known as Catallaxy Files) was founded by Jason Soon as a solo blog. He was later joined by Heath Gibson and it sort of grew from there.

Do not email requests for paid Guest Posts or for unacknowledged advertising or similar such stuff. All those emails are routinely ignored. We do not do that at the Cat.

Catallaxy is being preserved for posterity at the National Library of Australia.

After the last Great Server Crash we posted here for a while.

If you think that we should be covering issue X or Y or even Z and haven’t then write a Guest Post. Email it to Admin. The chances are that it will appear.

I don’t pay for posts – the Cat is a labour of love. So all those people who email me offering to write guest posts or ghost write posts and so on, please stop.
