Remembering Milton Friedman on his 100th Birth anniversary

Milton Friedmanwas born on 31-Jul-2012. 2012 also happens to be the 50th anniversary of his famous publication – Capitalism and Freedom.

Allen Sanderson of U of Chicago remembers Friedman in this nice tribute (HT: Mankiw’s Blog).

Loved this quote from the note:

If you put the federal government in charge of the Sahara Desert, in five years there’d be a shortage of sand
