Friedman the Mistaken
Yesterday was Milton Friedman Day, as Lawrence Kudlow reminded us at the Conservative Summit. I haven't posted about that, which is a glaring omission considering that Friedman is by this point probably the single most important influence on the modern conservative movement (he's bigger than Jesus, honestly).
I'll have my own things to say about Friedman in due time, but for now I'm scrambling to get the other two parts of this Summit report up for you. And anyway, Max Sawicky has all you need to know
- at least about Friedman's own mistakes. His influence on conservatives - well, like I said, we'll get to that.Update:
Also read this excellent post
