Milton Friedman did more good than good than every R and B president put together in the past 50 years
Don’t care what you think Team Red or Team Blue did. He was more accomplished then all of them. Mostly because no one did more for the poor in the past 100 years. He massively influenced the US, helped destroy the idea that inflation was a demand problem. India, China, Europe, Chile… there are few people whose lives weren’t touched by his ideas. Most of those country’s leaders attribute economic improvement by his ideas.
One great story is concerning Estonia: After the USSR collapsed, the 33 year old leader of Estonia put together a new capitalist system. What drove his philosophy: he said the only book he had read was free to choose.
I know this sub is socialist and hate the idea that economic freedom helps the poor, but just realize: he did more than if you multiplex Obama’s accomplishments by a trillion.
