Milton Friedman: Dead at 94

A moment of silence, please, for the passing of a prominent free market economist.

Milton Friedman: Dead at 94

Milton Friedman, Nobel Winning Economist, Dies at 94

My take? While one can certainly find problems with Friedman's theories and approach to free market advocacy - he was, afterall, largely responsible for income tax "withholding" - there is no denying that Friedman was a giant in the field of Economics. Whether you are a follower of the "Austrian" school of economics - such as I tend to be - Friedman's "Chicago" school, or some other school of thought, its hard to deny that Friedman had a lot of impact on the course of public policy.

Today, however, I pause to acknowledge that a great man has passed.
