Always nice to hear a bit more from Friedman, eh?  Seems he’s always relevant.  Time for #3.



A few more videos of the genius, who explains conservative principles in a far less abrasive manner than my level of patience allows me.


This is going to be the first in a series of posts featuring videos of Milton Friedman.  The man wasn’t just hilarious, he wasn’t just a genius, he had an amazing talent for communicating the virtues of democracy and the free market to people who otherwise might not worry about such things.

So, for the first set of videos, I’ll be posting the entirety of Mr. Friedman’s 1979 appearance on Donahue.  I’d say this is one of my favorites, but really, I’d end up saying that about all of these videos.  I will say that it is still priceless to me how easily he deals with Donahue in those moments when he’s convinced he’s got Friedman stumped, and how frustrated he gets to see that Milton, far from being backed into a corner, relishes the opportunity to correct Donahue’s misconceptions.

If you’ve seen these videos before, and are anything like me, I’m sure you’ll want to watch them again.  If you haven’t?  Well, enjoy!
