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.
