Chicago school economist, Milton Friedman, entered the public stage with publication of this book in 1962. Written for the lay audience, Friedman covers an array of topics, showing how interwoven economic policy is with politics. His classical liberal stance gained popularity in the following decades, and he went on to advise President Reagan and became one of the most influential economists of the 20th century. This volume of Fountain Notes is a solid introduction to Chicago school economics, the origins of what would become libertarianism, and many policy ideas still being discussed today. The basic edition notes are presented here, free of my annotations, in PDF format.
