Quotes & Awards

  • “Milton Friedman was the most authoritative exponent of the libertarian tradition in economics. He will be remembered as long as the subject endures, and this collection epitomizes the power of his mind and range of his mastery.” 

    George Gilder, New York Times bestselling author of Wealth and Poverty

  • “Economists can succeed Milton Friedman, but nobody can replace him. As this collection of rare but brilliant essays confirms, he was one of a kind, and is greatly missed.”

    Mark Skousen, editor, Forecasts & Strategies

  • “In addition to being a great innovator in economic thought, Milton, assisted by his wife Rose, helped to create a warm fellowship for young new faculty…Milton, along with Ted Schultz, George Stigler, Harry Johnson, Al Harberger, and Al Reese, created ‘The Chicago School.’”

    Robert Fogel, Nobel laureate, economic sciences

  • “Milton Friedman was one of the most important scholars of the twentieth century. He perfected the art of making economics understandable to the ordinary, untrained individual. That’s the true mark of a teacher.”

    Walter E. Williams, John M. Olin Distinguished Professor of Economics, George Mason University

  • “This volume of essays from the corpus of Milton Friedman’s work is not only welcome in light of the centennial of this brilliant intellectual’s birth, but will clear the air of so many prevalent economic myths that continue to haunt us today.”

    Fr. Robert A. Sirico, author of Defending the Free Market, president, Acton Institute
