Milton Friedman Crushes Man's 3 Questions like Dixie Cups

In this classic Free To Choose Network footage (1978), Milton Friedman takes three questions from an audience member and crushes them all.

The real problem is, that as we move from the local community to the state, from the state to the Federal government, it becomes increasingly difficult for us to control the mechanism we have established and that mechanism tends to control us. That was the great wisdom of the founding fathers of this country, of the people who wrote the Constitution. That constitution was designed to limit government’s powers in order to preserve the freedom of the individual, and what has happened in the past fifty years is that the fundamental character of the Constitution has really been changed. We have broadened enormously the conception of what is a governmental power and what is not, and have departed from that limited government until we have created a Frankenstein, an unlimited government that threatens to destroy us.

Milton Friedman Schools Young Idealist - 2 (Stanford)

In this archival Free To Choose Network footage, Milton Friedman takes Q & A at Stanford University. The classic exchange might as well have taken place yesterday. The young man's questions get to the heart of tension between the values of liberty and equality -- a tension that is still with us. Friedman dissolves egalitarianism by pointing out a simple fact: wealth redistribution creates state power elites, not equality. And the fact of coercion remains.

Milton Friedman Sets Liberal Straight On Too Many Millionaires.wmv

From a 1979 Donahue Show, economist Milton Friedman sets a liberal woman straight on the same argument fronted today by the Occupy Anything But a Bar of Soap crowd envious of other peoples success.

Isn't it odd to see the same arguments and desperation people had under Jimmy Carter coming back up under Barack Obama?

Ronald Reagan led us out of the last mess. Who is there to do it today?

Free To Choose - Milton Friedman on The Welfare System (1978) | Thomas Sowell

Milton Freidman, in the fourth segment of the series, shows why he believes government-run welfare programs do not help the people they are intended to help or achieve the ends they are intended to achieve, and why the welfare state leads to loss of initiative, independence, and personal liberty. Friedman compares slum areas and luxury apartments of New York City, visits two families on welfare, one in Harlem and one in Britain, and argues in favor of the negative income tax. Featuring Thomas Sowell.

Milton Friedman (/ˈfriːdmən/; July 31, 1912 – November 16, 2006) was an American economist who received the 1976 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences for his research on consumption analysis, monetary history and theory and the complexity of stabilization policy.[4] With George Stigler and others, Friedman was among the intellectual leaders of the second generation of Chicago school of economics, a methodological movement at the University of Chicago's Department of Economics, Law School and Graduate School of Business from the 1940s onward. Several students and young professors who were recruited or mentored by Friedman at Chicago went on to become leading economists, including Gary Becker, Robert Fogel, Thomas Sowell[5] and Robert Lucas Jr.[6]
Friedman's challenges to what he later called naive Keynesian theory[7] began with his 1950s reinterpretation of the consumption function. In the 1960s, he became the main advocate opposing Keynesian government policies[8] and described his approach (along with mainstream economics) as using Keynesian language and apparatus yet rejecting its initial conclusions.[9] He theorized that there existed a natural rate of unemployment and argued that unemployment below this rate would cause inflation to accelerate.[10] He argued that the Phillips curve was in the long run vertical at the natural rate and predicted what would come to be known as stagflation.[11] Friedman promoted an alternative macroeconomic viewpoint known as monetarism and argued that a steady, small expansion of the money supply was the preferred policy.[12] His ideas concerning monetary policy, taxation, privatization and deregulation influenced government policies, especially during the 1980s. His monetary theory influenced the Federal Reserve's response to the global financial crisis of 2007–2008.[13]
Friedman was an advisor to Republican President Ronald Reagan[3] and Conservative British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.[2] His political philosophy extolled the virtues of a free market economic system with minimal intervention. He once stated that his role in eliminating conscription in the United States was his proudest accomplishment. In his 1962 book Capitalism and Freedom, Friedman advocated policies such as a volunteer military, freely floating exchange rates, abolition of medical licenses, a negative income tax and school vouchers[14] and opposed the war on drugs. His support for school choice led him to found the Friedman Foundation for Educational Choice, later renamed EdChoice. - wikipedia

Milton Friedman Schools Young Idealist (Stanford)

In this classic footage from a Stanford University lecture, Professor Friedman takes Q&A after his talk The Role of Government in a Free Society. In this exchange, a young man describes poverty as a market failure. Friedman, in characteristic fashion, shows otherwise. Though this was recorded around 1979, the exchange is timeless.

4 Ways to Spend Money- Milton Friedman

In this episode of Friedman Files, I discuss Milton Friedman's assertion that “nobody spends somebody else’s money as carefully as he spends his own.”

To be clear, this is not a valid experiment and I'm not claiming that it is. This is just an interesting way to introduce Friedman's assertion to students and get them thinking about private and public spending. I'm also not saying that all government spending is bad or wasteful (although Friedman argued that much of it is). I'll be addressing that in another video. Stay tuned.

Feel free to participate in the experiment and let me know what happened in the comments below. Also, do you agree or disagree with Milton Friedman's view of government spending.

Remember, this is the first episode of a series of videos I’m making about Friedman. So be sure to like, subscribe, and come back soon. Thanks for watching.
