When Friedrich Hayek was a Visiting Professor at UCLA in 1969, I asked him what he thought of Milton Friedman’s proposal for a negative income tax. He said that he was strongly against it. He did not offer a detailed criticism himself but said that Henry Hazlitt had done an excellent refutation of it.
