"The amazing life story of Nobel Prize winning economist Milton Friedman can be complete and effectively told only when integrated with stories of the impact of his ideas here in the United States and throughout the world. No one person in the 20th cintury had such an impact on economic thinking worldwide, as has Milton Friedman. Yet his is a most unlikely story that he credits, in large measure, to "luck."

Unlikely heroes of the Arab Spring ( visu )
2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 9 libraries worldwide
Presented by the award-winning author and property-rights activist Hernando de Soto, this public television special presents, for the first time, the basic human and economic events that led to the Arab uprisings in the Middle East and North Africa. The program shows that "The Arab Spring" was less a political event than it was about the coming of the industrial revolution to a region where over 90% of the population lives and works outside the rule of law. De Soto shows us that this informal economy is, however, the one common thread that can contribute to the region's growth and stability
