The very best and most easily understood economics book...
...I ever read is Free To Choose by Milton and Rose Friedman. It explains free market economics in a way that is totally understandable to all. In fact, I recall that PBS actually made a miniseries based on the book - a far cry from the socialist trash that PBS now gives us.
He was a great man and will be missed, although his ideas will live on as long as there are people who really, truly believe in freedom.
"a far cry from the socialist trash that PBS now gives us"
Where does PBS get its money from?
Don't you watch PBS?
They have "mooch-a-thons" (And from the federal Government)
No money from the public, huh?
And HOW can the federal government possibly support such a commie propaganda apparatus? One almost feels ashamed of GW & Co.
The mooched money is from the public
the mooched money is from the public who want to support this commie channel. I'm surprised that the American people would want that. If it wasn't for the public support they wouldn't survive. Obviously the public want it to survive. But there are always some people who prefer to see a homogenious propaganda apparatus. Are you one of them?
Please duckman, DNR :-)
and no harm has been made.
BTW, why shouldn't he reply if he wanted to? Because you said it? Now it is really getting to you, the thing with the moderators and policies et. al. I agree with Cindi's post in another thread. You need to chill Evie!
Cindi's post that I agree with is this one.
Terry, if you're not part of the solution...
Please don't add to the problem. Live and let live.
A great man with so many truly significant accomplishments.
There aren't many with comparable records of achievement.
Figures that its Michelle Malkin doing the obit.
Despite the Nobel Prize, he was a hack, his historical data was cherry-picked from a time when there was little competition for industrialized Britain in the 19th Century which was his paradigm economy he chose for his book, and his thesis had holes that even I could drive a truck through.
However I'm sure he has no end of fans here at SE.
Paul Samuelson also has a Nobel Prize, and is a far better economist, but not nearly as glib or as Conservative.
If you don't have something nice to say ...
Jeez, the man just died for cryin' out loud.
Many people who won he NP did...
and got noting but words like "scum", "I hope he rotten in hell", "I'd take care of the execution", "may he have a long painful death" etc. These are words said to those who have won Nobel Prizes! And by what seem to be your friends, Evie!
So all I have to say in this matter is, RIH Milton!
Your arguments are so mature and sophisticated that
I am left speechless!
Your "on your face" type arguments and your "t*i*t for tat" debate style only shows your lack of any conviction but the true intent of your posts.
When you judge the accomplishments of a Nobel prize winner,
it helps to have the expertise to do so.
What economic credentials can you cite to give credence to your claims to knowledge and expertise? A degree in economics from a prestigious institution? Preferably a Phd. A Phd in anything?
Not that it takes a PhD to realize that Milton has inspired Chile's fascist regime and their economic policy,but I believeI have enough titles/knowledge to have an opinion about this...
YOU may not have a PhD and it is not necessary. The title isn't wjat is going to judge us when we see St. Peter, if anyone believes in that. Apparently not since they are eager to get a title...
inspired Pinochet and his fascist regime in Chile. That should be enough, Rob...
