9781433200151: Free to Choose: A Personal Statement

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. Powerful and persuasive, here is the important analysis of what has gone wrong in America in the past and what is necessary for our economic health to flourish.

Product Description:

All who listen to this masterful and lucid polemic for a free market economy will never question Milton Friedman's Nobel Prize in economics. Friedman and his wife Rose team to write a most convincing and readable guide that illustrates the crucial link between Adam Smith's capitalism and the free society.

From the Back Cover:

In this classic about economics, freedom, and the relationship between the two, Milton and Rose Friedman explain how our freedom has been eroded and our prosperity undermined through the explosion of laws, regulations, agencies, and spending in Washington, and how good intentions often produce deplorable results when government is the middleman. The Friedmans also provide remedies for these ills--they tell us what to do in order to expand our freedom and promote prosperity.
