The Ongoing Debate About Capitalism and Freedom
With a H/T to one of my favorite blog sites, Cafe Hayek, watch this YouTube “debate” between Naomi Klein and Milton Friedman.
Further videos on Klein vs Friedman can be found at the bottom of this post from Copious Dissent.
For more information on Friedman’s underlying ideas, check out these Friedman-centric posts from my earlier 17-part series on Economic Thoughts, where the final post has links at the bottom to all prior posts:
The Relationship between Economic Freedom and Political Freedom
More on the Relationship Between Economic Freedom and Political Freedom
The Role of Government in a Free Society
The Power of the Market
More from Friedman is here.
Several other key posts from the 17-part series on Economic Thought include:
