Abstract or Description
The title of this session is "Milton, Money, and Mischief.'' In case you do not know the origin of the title, it is from his latest book just published this year, Episodes In Monetary History: Money Mischief by Milton Friedman. But we are going to talk about more than money and Milton. Even if this were not an audience of professional economists, even if it were not an audience in a conference in the United States, or communicating in English, the name Friedman would probably be more familiar than any other in our profession, more widely known for what it is associated with, a name that has become identified with the idea of freedom throughout the world
