Happy 99th Birthday, Milton Friedman!

Milton Friedman

Today is the 99th Birthday of Milton Friedman, one of the most important economists of all time!

We remember him with this Friedman quote and video below (H/T to Don Boudreaux for running the quote at his fine blog, Cafe Hayek):

When “fairness” replaces “freedom,” all our liberties are in danger. In Walden, Thoreau says: “If I knew for a certainty that a man was coming to my house with the conscious design of doing me good, I should run for my life.” That is the way I feel when I hear my “servants” in Washington assuring me of the “fairness” of their edicts.
