The Power of Ideas: Milton Friedman and Chicago Economics

The Power of Ideas: Milton Friedman and Chicago Economics

Milton Friedman was one of the greatest economists of the 20th century. His continuing influence results from the power of his ideas—ideas built on the twin pillars of sound economic theory and careful empirical analysis. We invite you to join University of Chicago President Robert J. Zimmer, professors Gary Becker and Lars Hansen, and Research Scholar Scott Kominers in a discussion of the lasting impact of Milton Friedman and the University of Chicago's Becker Friedman Institute.
