Happy Birthday Milton Friedman
Indeed, Friedman once said, "Freedom is not the natural state of mankind. It is a rare and wonderful achievement. It will take an understanding of what freedom is, of where the dangers to freedom come from. It will take the courage to act on that understanding if we are not only to preserve the freedoms that we have, but to realize the full potential of a truly free society."
So as we celebrate Milton Friedman's birthday and achievements, we must continue his legacy and keep making the case for freedom.
