Introducing his 1963 political and economic classic, Capitalism and Freedom, Milton Friedman voices a central question of the “free man”:
“What can I and my compatriots do through government to help us discharge our individual responsibilities, to achieve our several goals and purposes, and above all, to protect our freedom?”
The answer to this question is rooted in the belief that free individuals are responsible for their personal destinies and are able to act in their own interests. Friedman addresses the societal conditions necessary to protect and foster freedom in his exploration of the two themes of “Capitalism and Freedom”: the proper role of competitive capitalism and the role of government in such a system.
