Milton Friedman Remembered

Mil­ton Fried­man, a Nobel Prize win­ner, archi­tect and lead­ing advo­cate of free mar­kets, and one of the most impor­tant econ­o­mists of the 20th cen­tu­ry, died this past week at 94.

The Uni­ver­si­ty of Chica­go, where Fried­man taught since 1946, has col­lect­ed a series of arti­cles review­ing his life and accom­plish­ments. Along sim­i­lar lines, Stan­ford’s Hoover Insti­tu­tion, with which Fried­man was affil­i­at­ed from 1977 until his death, has post­ed a page that includes links to videos fea­tur­ing the econ­o­mist. (Look for the videos under the area called “Pub­li­ca­tions.”)

Final­ly, from the Youtube archives, you can see a short clip from 1980, where we find a younger Mil­ton Fried­man and Don Rums­feld in con­ver­sa­tion.
