The incredible life of Milton Friedman (1912-2006)

Who are the most consequential men of the last 50 years?  Let me suggest President Reagan, Pope John Paul II and Dwight Eisenhower, the World War II general and then the consequential 34th President.

How about Milton Friedman, the greatest economist of our generation?

Friedman died in 2006.   He was born on this day in 1912.    We still miss him.

My Milton Friedman memories go back to college and the 1980 Reagan campaign.

First, he wrote that great book “Free to choose“.   It became a TV series and many of us learned a lot by watching it.

Second, he was the leader of the “Chicago Boys” who fixed Chile after Pinochet overthrew Allende.

Friedman was a consequential man.  He left us a lot of books, essays. documentaries and a wonderful foundation for future generations!
