Friedman has done both. In his classic book, Capitalism and Freedom, Milton Friedman presents his view of the proper role of competitive capitalism - the organization of the bulk of economic activity through private enterprise operating in a free market - as both a device for achieving economic freedom and a necessary condition for political freedom.
He also outlines the role that government should play in a society dedicated to freedom and relying primarily on the market to organize economic activity. Friedman begins with a discussion of the principles of a truly liberal society. He then applies those principles to a range of pressing problems, including monetary policy, discrimination, education, income distribution, welfare, and poverty.
The result is a book that has sold well over half a million copies in English, has been translated into eighteen languages, and has become increasingly influential in recent years as more and more governments have moved from highly planned economies to embrace free market economics.

I've tried to go in with an open mind, but I've failed to be convinced. While being aimed at the lay reader, the book gets incredibly technical during some of the earlier chapters. Many of Friedmann's arguments are simple many are VERY simple , and he often provides no evidence for them. This is consistent with other books I've read by other modern economists, who have confirmed this about Friedmann-refusing to believe their evidence based arguments, dismissing them off-hand with pure conjecture.
I'm still glad I read it, I'd recommend everyone interested in the economic side of politics does, but don't expect a well-reasoned justification for the positions proposed here.
This is a fantastic book. Having studied Friedman extensively for his work on transaction cost economics, I wanted to read more of his work.
I found this book to be incredibly insightful, whilst some of the language is now a little dated, none of the concepts presented within it are, if anything they have more poignancy than ever before. Even if you have only the subtlest interest in economics, politics and social study's, then book will be a great read and time well spent, it really is an eye opener and gives the reader real insights and powerful positive arguments of the benefits of the capitalist system.
Honestly one of my favourite books ever. Friedman argues his points very well, and I often found it hard to disagree. This book truly changed by perspective on a lot of issues that I thought were rather obvious.
Truly eye-opening, and a book that I will never forget. Milton is often misquoted, misunderstood, and his reasoning contorted - it is a pleasure to read this book and follow his train of thought across various political, economic, and social subject areas. Even if you disagree with his economic theory, you will be delighted by his style of writing and clear deduction. A book that goes against blind conformity - what a pleasure to read and I hope there are more critical thinkers out there.
One person found this helpful. Fantastic - compelling, thought-provoking and really well written. Don't get lost in the monetary bit if you're not an economist - I struggled with that section but most of it is not so technical. Back to top. Get to Know Us. English Choose a language for shopping.

The book identifies several places in which a free market can be promoted for both philosophical and practical reasons.
This book examines the work of Milton Friedman, which is amongst the most significant in modern economics and, equally, amongst the most contentious. Although Friedman became most famous for his views on money and monetary policy as well as his public writings, a large and important part of his work concerned other aspects of economics. By focussing on what Friedman wrote rather than what later authors have written about him, this volume seeks to analyse the character, qualities and development of the arguments he made.

Но Стратмор смотрел на молодого сотрудника лаборатории систем безопасности. Коммандер спускался по лестнице, ни на мгновение не сводя с него глаз. Он быстро подошел к ним и остановился в нескольких сантиметрах от дрожащего Чатрукьяна. - Вы что-то сказали.
Складывалось впечатление, что он отключился сам по. Сьюзан знала, что такое могло произойти только по одной причине - если бы в Следопыте завелся вирус. Вирусы были самой большой неприятностью, с которой сталкивались в своей работе программисты. Поскольку компьютеры должны были выполнять операции в абсолютно точном порядке, самая мелкая ошибка могла иметь колоссальные последствия.
Это был Джабба. ГЛАВА 107 Сьюзан понятия не имела, сколько прошло времени. Жжение в горле заставило ее собраться с мыслями. Стоя на ковре возле письменного стола, она в растерянности осматривала кабинет шефа.
Обернувшись, они увидели быстро приближавшуюся к ним громадную черную фигуру. Сьюзан никогда не видела этого человека раньше. Подойдя вплотную, незнакомец буквально пронзил ее взглядом. - Кто это? - спросил. - Сьюзан Флетчер, - ответил Бринкерхофф.
ГЛАВА 15 Сьюзан Флетчер расположилась за компьютерным терминалом Третьего узла. Этот узел представлял собой звуконепроницаемую уединенную камеру, расположенную неподалеку от главного зала. Двухдюймовое искривленное стекло односторонней видимости открывало перед криптографами панораму зала, не позволяя увидеть камеру снаружи. В задней ее части располагались двенадцать терминалов, образуя совершенную окружность.
Еще только начинало светать, но движение уже было довольно оживленным: молодые жители Севильи возвращались после ночных пляжных развлечений. Резко просигналив, пронесся мимо мини-автобус, до отказа забитый подростками. Мотоцикл Беккера показался рядом с ним детской игрушкой, выехавшей на автостраду. Метрах в пятистах сзади в снопе искр на шоссе выкатило такси.
