mourning Milton Friedman

rock star economist and good joe, Milton Friedman, has passed this past week. his genius won him a nobel back in '76 for his work in monetary theory. Friedman will best be remembered by Cato and like groups not just for his insistance that the role of government in controlling the economy should be severely restricted, but for his staunch libertarian views about the limits of government in general. his latest schtick, with his wife, Rose, has been about the advancement of school choice in the US.
