If there was a market for Milton Friedman, he would still be around.
To be fair, he actually influenced my economic and political thinking a bit, especially in my younger years. I liked the general liberal outlook and the idea of the negative income tax. But like most economists, he was too simplistic after all, just looking at numbers and models instead of the people. That’s how you end up going to Chile in 1975 and talking about inflation instead of political prisoners. Wrong priority.
