Why is there no Milton Friedman today?

Why Is There No Milton Friedman Today?

A symposium co-sponsored by the Mercatus Center at George Mason University

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?

  • John Blundell
  • David Colander
  • Tyler Cowen
  • Richard Epstein
  • James K. Galbraith
  • J. Daniel Hammond
  • David R. Henderson
  • Daniel Houser
  • Steven Medema
  • Sam Peltzman
  • Richard Posner
  • Robert Solow
Well worth a read.
