Milton Friedman Speech
I understand these videos are long, but they are well worth it. Donohue tries time and time again to stump Milton and he not only provides excellent answers, but answers that could not be delivered more eloquently. It is shocking that nearly all of the topics covered in this debate are still being discussed today. I lost track of the number of times I said "Fuck Yeah!"
Props to Happypants for bringing them to my attention.
There will never be another like Uncle Milty.
Except maybe Uncle Eddie.
Repeal the New Deal.
Forget the New Deal...the GREAT SOCIETY was many times more expensive
I also love the way Milton Friedman makes things easy for most people to understand...though I'm afraid sometimes he oversimplifies things, but I always do agree with his statements even when he does.
EDIT: Shame on anyone with SB in tow for not hooking Gekko up for posting these vids. My mistake in that regard, stands corrected.
Taibbi rips Mr. Greenspan a new asshole.
As a huge Dr. Friedman fan, let me urge people to also check out the "Free to Choose" series (I particularly love the debates at the end of each episode).
Milton's PBS Documentary/Series "Free To Choose"
Like Gekko said, many of these topics are just as relevant today, as when the series was made. RIP Milton.
Huge fan. Thanks for posting this.
A brilliant man, who also had a humble and gracious personality. Very charitable (intellectually and philanthropically)
Not a political hack like Paul Krugman.
George Stigler (another great Chicago economist who focused on industrial organization and micro) had a great quote -- "All great economists are tall. The only exceptions are Milton Friedman and John Galbraith" (Friedman was around 5'3"; Galbraith was ~6'6").
Funny picture that goes with that quote.
Bloody. Fucking. Brilliant.
MF is my idol. It's too bad that sentiment is lost in today's liberal vs. tea party clusterf#$k
I was just amazed at how calm both men were. You could see Donahue getting frustrated because I think he realized he was losing, but both men didn't raise their voices and stayed calm....something that doesn't exist in today's debates.
Someone really needs to email this to Bill O'Reilly
I will. Dude went to my HS. I like most of what he has to say, except that he is sort of an asshole in real life...actually asshole is the wrong word...its more like a Big FUCK YOU...Im a self-made man, keep your hands off my money.
wow, great find. Thanks for sharing.

Great series. Interesting how female dominated the crowd was.
Give where credit is due though, Donahue is a legend in his own right. I doubt any newscaster today could go toe to toe with Friedman.
