We Need a Little [sic] More Milton Friedman Right About Now

Source: Town Hall
by Stephen Moore

“Not long ago, President Joe Biden made an offhanded comment that ‘Milton Friedman isn’t running the show anymore.’ This president has seldom spoken more valid words. And that’s where the trouble has begun. If you were to rate the three most influential economic minds of all time, you’d be hard-pressed to come up with a better trio than Adam Smith, John Maynard Keynes and Friedman. I’m a little too young to have known Keynes or Smith, but I am old enough to have gotten to know Friedman, and I’m proud to have called him a friend. … Few academics have done more to advance human freedom than Friedman. He was the leading apostle for the free enterprise system.” (11/23/21)
