Milton Friedman changed the world. Eamonn Butler is director of the Adam Smith Institute, rated one of the world's leading policy think-tanks. From free markets in China to the flat taxes of Eastern Europe, from the debate on drugs to interest rate policy, Friedman's skill for vivid argument and ideas led to robust and often successful challenges to a dizzying amount of received wisdom. Relying on big-picture economic analysis and an insistent faith in human freedom, he took on the economic and political orthodoxies of his day - and if he didn't always win, he never failed to change the terms of the debate.

"One of the most important economic thinkers of all time"- Paul KrugmanMilton Friedman changed the world. From free markets in China to the flat taxes of Eastern Europe, from the debate on drugs to interest rate policy, Friedman's skill for vivid argument and ideas led to robust and often successful challenges to a dizzying amount of received wisdom.Relying on big-picture economic analysis and an insistent faith in human freedom, he took on the economic and political orthodoxies of his day - and if he didn't always win, he never failed to change the terms of the debate.Rarely an uncontroversial figure, with his disciples and detractors to this day, this is neither a credulous nor a critical look at the Nobel laureate. A brand new guide, it simply sets out to explain his economic and public policy thinking in a straightforward and accessible way for the general reader and student.Find out:- how Friedman undermined Keynesianism and the prevailing wisdom of large-scale economic intervention- how he demonstrated the true cause of the Great Depression and identified its real culprits (they weren't the ones jumping out of the windows)- what Friedman believed really destroys the value of the money in your pocket and how it can be stopped- his arguments for why regulations and minimum- wage laws actually achieve lower standards and greater poverty- his reasons for why big corporations prefer markets that aren't free, and how high taxation harms the wealthy less than anyone else.With more, too, on democracy, equality, global trade, education, public services and financial crises, this is a concise but comprehensive guide to the influence of a key 20th century thinker. It is a must-read for anyone who wants to know more about the economist whose work changed everything.
  • Eamonn Butler has captured the essence of the thinking of Milton Friedman without embellishment or judgement in a very insightful and informative primer to an understanding of Libertarian Economics.

  • Great stuff, deserves a regular re-read.

  • The author gives a great overview of Milton Friedman's ideas and includes plenty of quotes from Friedman's own works. This is a great introductory book and will certainly get readers excited to explore Friedman's economic theory in more detail.

  • very well written. wonder why the current white house wants to use tried and failed policies unless he wants to change to socialism.

  • I went into this book with only a rough idea of Friedman's philosophy. As i read, I found myself wanting to highlight every Friedman quote in the book. What a great mind! Mr. Butler's easy style and organization really provided a strong foundation and understanding of the libertarian philosophy and it's benefit to mankind as espoused by Friedman. And he does not devolve into dry academic drivel as as he propounds his views. I plan to proceed exploring this great thinking with Friedman's own works.

  • Great documentary on the great economist and political philosopher Milton Friedman. As we see the world economy collapsing under the weight or communism and socialism, everyone should read and watch Milton Friedman to discover the only way to freedom and prosperity, a well governed free market capitalism.

  • I don't know why. It it's also making queue up to sixteen words and this makes no sense what do ever

  • It clearly explains the economic view of pure capitalism, a philosophy which leaves little room for compassion and almost totally blind to the power of greed and pure selfishness.
