Milton and Rose Friedman were two of the most important economists of the twentieth century. In the 1970s, they were central to the Chicago School of Economics which largely rejected Keynesianism in place of monetarism, or the priority of policies that controlled money in circulation. Milton Friedman won a Nobel Prize in Economics in 1976. Together they authored two books and facilitated numerous public events. In Free to Choose, Milton and Rose Friedman produced a major bestselling advocation of free market economics. Its chapters describe the core arguments of Chicago School economics in accessible detail. It was released in 1980 in tandem with a PBS television series wherein Milton Friedman lectured on the same ideas. While the Miltons’ economic theories have been scrutinized in recent decades, they remain some of the driving paradigms of U.S. economic policy. Free to Choose showcases a publicly accessible version of these ideas, one that shaped popular economic thought through the 1980s to today.
