January 29 Is Milton Friedman Day

Mark your calendar for January 29, Milton Friedman Day, a day when the invisible hand of the marketplace takes a break and gives ol’ Miltie a reacharound.

The late Friedman was a leading economist, free-market proponent, and Nobel prize laureate.

The Economist will host a day of web-discussion and there will be a national PBS broadcast of The Power of Choice: The Life and Ideas of Milton Friedman.
