Publisher's Summary

One of the great economists of the 20th century, Milton Friedman has always challenged the prevailing economic orthodoxy. At the same time, his work has become popular because it is engagingly written and because it helps in practical prediction. Thanks to Friedman, money is now regarded as a far more powerful factor than it had been before. It offers the prospect of permanently controlling the inflation that has become the most important economic problem of our age.
Eamonn Butler’s clear, systematic, perceptive study deftly describes Friedman’s ideas and explains their significance. Starting with a short survey of Friedman’s career, Dr. Butler goes on to analyze the main elements in his thought, including the importance of monetary policy, the supply of money, the factors that influence demand, the causes and nature of inflation, and much more.

this is one of my favourite books I've ever read

Milton Friedman is hands down my favourite economist (but I believe that Adam Smith was the greatest economist of all time). The first book I ever read for pleasure in my life was Capitalism and Freedom when I was in high school and I have watched almost every YouTube video involving Dr. Friedman there is. But this book is probably my favourite book I've read involving him.

I'm a 20 year old mathematics and economics major right now and one day I plan to get my PhD in economics.

Enjoyable summary of Friedmam's ideas

I enjoyed this summary of Friedman's ideas. Went in to quite a lot of detail. Contrasts Friedman with Keynes. Would recommend.
