The Montreal Economic Institute is publishing an abridged French translation of a book on the ideas of Milton Friedman, who would have celebrated his 100th birthday in 2012. This booklet aims to make his economic and political thought accessible to the general public. From market liberalization in China to the flat tax in Eastern Europe, from debates over school vouchers to monetary policy, Friedman brilliantly defended ideas that led to the challenging of numerous public policies. Relying on big-picture economic analysis and an insistent faith in individual freedom, he took on the economic and political orthodoxies of his day — and if he didn’t always win, he never failed to change the terms of the debate.
Booklet available in French and in printed version only.
