Essays on Politics and Economics
Milton Friedman is one of the most famous economists in history. He revolutionized understanding of the Great Depression, helped establish the Chicago school of economics, and was awarded a Nobel Prize. But eclipsing these achievements is the vital role he played at the crux of the debate over capitalism. It was Friedman who in the 1970s almost single-handedly kept the argument for capitalism alive, stressing that the free market was the only way to achieve prosperity and retain personal liberty.
This book is a general collection of Friedman’s writings that spans his entire career. These essays provide always fresh insights into topics that continue to drive public debate today such as health care reform, drug legalization, school vouchers and the economics of Adam Smith and John Maynard Keynes.
