Politics

“The Indispensable Milton Friedman” is a collection of little known essays by the late American economist Milton Friedman, newly published to commemorate his 100th birthday.

MBJ-TV talked with Dr. Lanny Ebenstein, an economics professor at UC-Santa Barbara and the book’s editor earlier this week. Ebenstein says the book adds to Friedman’s legacy as a Great Depression scholar, writer, educator and political adviser.

Coiner of the famous phrase “there’s no such thing as a free lunch,” the Nobel Memorial Prize recipient Friedman changed the course of America’s economic history with his ground-breaking theories on politics and economics.

Available through Regnery for $27.95, “Indispensable” is a collection of twenty of Friedman’s most timely works including his thoughts on liberalism, health care, and limiting the role of the U.S. government.

Excerpts from the MBJ-TV Ebenstein video interview are available below.
