Happy Birthday Milton Friedman


July 31st would have marked Milton Friedman's 98th birthday. Since the 31st falls on a Saturday this year, the Milton & Rose Friedman Foundation has selected today as the third, annual "Friedman Day."

Several think tanks, Institutes, foundations, and student groups will be busy celebrating Friedman's legacy, including the Institute for Liberal Studies, and the Fraser Institute here in Canada.

The Institute for Liberal Studies is hosting a luncheon at Parliament Hill in honour of Friedman's birthday, while the Fraser Institute is celebrating his legacy as well.

Why celebrate Friedman? He was a man who legitimized government approved counterfeiting. His cheering on of central bank intervention is much to blame for the economic crisis we face today. Reference
