Just like his predecessor, Hoff was also a member of Mont Pelerin Society and a frequent speaker at a number of the society’s meetings.[3] Hoff was an honoree at the Foundation for Economic Education‘s Honor Roll of Authors for The Freeman, 1956–1996.[5][relevant?] He was a faculty member and adjunct scholar at Ludwig von Mises Institute.[6] He was also a previous member of the editorial board of the Review of Austrian Economics[7][8]

Hoff is an ardent believer of freedom philosophy and free market economic ideas of Leonard Read, the founder of the Foundation for Economic Education (FEE), a clearly American-pioneered paradigm.[9] He call his ideas as anarcho-capitalist.[10]
