Happy Birthday Milton Friedman!
Born on July 31, 1912, few people have had a greater influence on our prosperity than Milton Friedman. Although Dr. Friedman passed away in 2006, his work is very much alive.
Professor of economics for more than 30 years, economic adviser to President Ronald Reagan and Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, and recipient of the Nobel Prize in Economics, Milton Friedman's work is, according to President Reagan, "of rare importance."
In fact, Reagan called Friedman's lecture series, "Free to Choose," a "survival kit for you, for our nation, and for freedom."
