Today is Milton Friedman‘s 91st birthday.
I saw his Free To Choose series on PBS in 1980 and was very impressed; not just with how bright and convincing he was, but with how thoughtful, kind, and
patient he was with people who didn’t understand his arguments.
Milton Friedman was an important influence on me, and I’m sure he’ll continue to be a great influence on others for many years to come.
I heard him on a radio interview a few months ago and he still seemed very sharp. I hope he’s having a great time!
