"Milton Friedman puts verities back into focus and puts us back in touch with how a free and abundant society can work - if we let it. That is why he deserved his Nobel Prize in economics, and it is why you should read this book." ( Reader's Digest)

Extremely Important Listen!!!
A friend recommended this book and I'm grateful he did. A knowledge of free market economics is a must these days, rather than making decisions based on media soundbites. As this book was written in the early 80's, familiarity with that time is helpful not only in understanding examples, but in seeing how things have played out since then. After this listen, move on to "The Road to Serfdom" by F. A. Hayek for more indepth exploration of ways to maintain economic and personal freedom. Important and interesting!!! The narration was well done and very "listenable".

The most compelling book (of any type) that I have read in years. The authors are so clear and straightforward, the ideas so natural, that I cannot believe that I waited until know to read this.
The examples are dated, but all of the history since seems only to verify the predictions made.
I highly recommended it for anyone interested in economics and politics.
