Read full description of the books Capitalism and Freedom:In the bestselling Capitalism & Freedom (based on lectures given at Wabash College, 6/56), Friedman presents his view of the proper role of competitive capitalism--the organization of economic activity thru private enterprise operating in a free market--as both a device for achieving economic freedom & a necessary condition for political freedom. Beginning with a discussion of principles of a liberal society, he applies them to such constantly pressing problems as monetary policy, discrimination, education, income distribution, welfare & poverty.
"Milton Friedman is one of the nation's outstanding economists, distinguished for remarkable analytical powers & technical virtuosity. He is unfailingly enlightening, independent, courageous, penetrating & above all, stimulating."-Henry Hazlitt, Newsweek
"It is a rare professor who greatly alters the thinking of his professional colleagues. It's an even rarer one who helps transform the world. Friedman has done both."-Stephen Chapman, Chicago Tribune
Read information about the authorMilton Friedman was an American Nobel Laureate economist and public intellectual. He made major contributions to the fields of economics and statistics. In 1976, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Economics for his achievements in the fields of consumption analysis, monetary history and theory, and for his demonstration of the complexity of stabilization policy. He was an advocate of economic freedom.
According to The Economist, Friedman "was the most influential economist of the second half of the 20th century...possibly of all of it". Former Federal Reserve Board chairman Alan Greenspan stated, "There are very few people over the generations who have ideas that are sufficiently original to materially alter the direction of civilization. Milton is one of those very few people."
