Milton Friedman dies.
I’ve read a couple of his books, my favorite being Money Mischief.
Friedmanâ€™s view, government had the opposite obligation: to keep its
hands off the economy, to let the free market do its work. He was a
spiritual heir to Adam Smith, the 18th-century founder of the science
of economics and proponent of laissez-faire: that government governs
best which governs least.
