Free to Choose by Milton Friedman

(this is a repost from the Lead21 blog)

One of the patron thought-leaders of Lead21 is Milton Friedman … one of the greatest economists of the 20th Century (and now the 21st Century).

Friedman solidified his stardom by creating a 10-part TV series in the 1970s called Free to Choose. this is a television classic and there is nothing better to watch to get educated on economics. this TV series is better than any college education on economics or political thought.

Economist Greg Mankiw (another one of my favorite economists) provides a link to the free videos (now available on Google video) on his blog:

now i rarely watch TV and don’t have access to one in my home … but as Mankiw says, some TV is worth watching.
