Milton the Magnificent

Autobiography of Milton Friedman

Milton was a most unusual man and, I believe, a great one.

He was a guest on Think Tank several times.

I disagreed with him sometimes.

I once had him on, via a satellite hook-up, one in CA, one in MA, with his friend John Kenneth Galbraith. They expressed disagreement without being disagreeable.

Way to go, MF + JKG.

Galbraith was a better writer; Freidman a better economist.

For economists, latter more important than former.
