Celebrating Milton Friedman’s birthday today

Link here. He would have been 106 today, and was probably one of the more important, and sadly rare, pro-freedom economists of the 20th century.

The link has some excellent videos of Friedman, all worth watching.

This however continues to be my favorite Friedman quote:


Happy birthday Milton Friedman

Happy 100th birthday to Milton Friedman!

Go to the link to watch some wonderful video clips of Friedman clearly and with good humor explaining the benefits of freedom and capitalism. However, for me my favorite Milton Friedman quote is without question this one, on the real way to change Congress:
