Why Is there no Milton Friedman today?

July 29, 2013

I just missed this really interesting symposium hosted by EJW. It asks this question to select econs: Why Is there no Milton Friedman today?

Imagine that someone with all the endowments of a Milton Friedman were born in the 1960s or 1970s. Is it conceivable that such a person would develop into a ‘Milton Friedman’ like we know the actual Friedman to have been, including his academic eminence and his eloquent and influential advocacy of classical liberalism? Here leading economists address the question: Why is there no Milton Friedman today?

Nice short articles sharing anecdotes, personal experiences and ofcourse giving their perspectives on the main question in the symposium..
