Rated 1 out of 5 by from Google: milton friedman unravelled I read this book. All I can say is 'LOL' and wow. I can't believe how far economics has failed us all. I can sum this up as followsl: Keynesian - Like government and central banks Chicago School/Monetarist/Milton Friedman - Hates government but loves central banks, or more specifically believes that the money supply should be controlled by governments. If anyone is really looking for the honest truth, that history has forgotten, then please don't read this book. It's just an attack on government but falls short as he believes the money supply should be 'controlled' or managed..there is nothing free or even smart in that. If you want the truth, then please do yourself a favour and discover Austrian Economics. That is the true libertarian ideas, not a fan of government intervention, but also not a fan of having the money supply being controlled, or printed out of thin air to buy things like stocks, mortgages and securities I.e. no central bank intervention,however Uncle Miltie is okay with that, and thus is not free The Austrians disproved everything Milton and Keynes ever said... MV = PY, money velocity, CPI the notion of a general price level, Philips curve, has been proven false by the Austrians but they have been left in the dark by soicety. Ludwig Von Mises, Murray Rothbard, F.A.Hayek, Henry Hazlitt (Economics in one Lesson) for example will set you free. Don't be afraid even though the truth may be scary, but if you read the above you'll realize Friedman, like Keynes are both 'cranks' as Murray Rothbard called him, a technocrat who makes things up as he goes. Please google milton friedman unravelled and change your life perspective Good luck

From Our Editors

In this classic about economics, freedom, and the relationship between the two, Milton and Rose Friedman explain how our freedom has been eroded and our prosperity undermined through the explosion of laws, regulations, agencies, and spending in Washington, and how good intentions often produce deplorable results when government is the middleman. The Friedmans also provide remedies for these ills--they tell us what to do in order to expand our freedom and promote prosperity.
