Featuring “Free to Choose: Tyranny of Control” Video presentation with comments from Cato executive vice president David Boaz.

One of the world’s greatest economists, Milton Friedman, passed away on November 16. Friedman did groundbreaking work on the economics of monetary policy, inflation and unemployment, exchange rates, and lifetime savings. He was also one of the 20th century’s most vigorous and effective advocates of individual freedom, on issues ranging from school choice to the draft to drug prohibition — which is why the Milton Friedman Prize for Advancing Liberty was named in his honor. Please join us Monday as Cato executive vice president David Boaz remembers a few of the highlights of Friedman’s illustrious career and introduces an episode of his pathbreaking television series, Free to Choose.
