Milton Friedman on "Greed"

Milton Friedman had a wonderful way of taking complex economic issues and distilling them into conversations that the common man could understand.  Not with demagoguery, not with double talk, but with a straight-forward presentation of facts and logic.  This short exchange with Phil Donahue is just one example (courtesy of Powerline).

I just discovered that Friedman's classic 1980 television series "Free to Choose" is available through Google Video.  In addition, the 1990 follow-on, plus some recorded interviews, are also available to watch for free.  You can see them through THIS LINK to

Well worth your time.  Watch it with your family.  Send the links to your friends.  It's not too late.
