Happy birthday Milton Friedman

In honor of what would have been Milton  Friedman’s 100th birthday the Webb has a number of suggestions that we need him to solve current economic problems.

If he were born in 1912 then he would have been in his 20s as the world was coming out of the depression and his thinking was strongly influenced by the world’s going into a period of unprecedented economic growth.

For his advice to be relevant now he would have to had adapted to current circumstances in which it is doubtful economic growth can continue.

Even so I like a lot of what he said.  Here’s a link to ten of his best quotes.
