Abstract:

All who listen to this masterful and lucid polemic for a free-market economy will never question Milton Friedman's Nobel Prize in economics. Milton Friedman and his wife Rose team up to write a most convincing and readable guide that illustrates the crucial link between Adam Smith's capitalism and the free society. They show how freedom has been eroded and prosperity undermined through the rapid growth of governmental agencies, laws, and regulations. While a large central government may have good intentions, the results it produces are lamentable. More than another indictment of government planning and bureaucracy, however, Free to choose offers several convincing and creative remedies to the world's woes.
