Milton Friedman and His Legacy of Freedom
Recorded on July 31, 2007
Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium
Across the globe, he was rightfully praised as one of the 20th
Century's great champions of freedom. President George W.
Bush called him a "revolutionary thinker" and one of America's
"greatest citizens." Former British Prime Minister Margaret
Thatcher heralded him as an "intellectual freedom fighter."
When he passed away in November of last year at the age of 94, Dr.
Milton Friedman was broadly recognized and hailed as one of the
world's most powerful and influential defenders of freedom.
On what would have been Dr. Friedman's 95th birthday - July 31,
2007 - a national day of events are planned to honor his vision and
the ideas that were dear to him - individual liberty, free markets,
limited government, and, of course, school choice. We may
have lost a visionary, but we have not lost our vision. Join
us as The Cato Institute and The Heritage Foundation celebrate the
lasting impact Milton Friedman had on society and pay tribute to
his freedom legacy.
