Friedman was a free market supporter. Private sector > public sector. Not sure what else to add...

Friedman was a free market supporter.

Oh, he was? That's awesome. But have you ever stopped and wondered why you hear the phrase "free market" ten times a day? If the market is free then how come 65 percent of new businesses manage to collapse sometime in their first decade?

That can't be the market's fault though, right? The market is free.

Free.

Free market, free market, free market.

Although Friedman was an great economist with respect to triangular intervention, he still lacked confidence in free markets concerning money, military and police and was for government taxation and expenditures.

Milton was a useful idiot who empowered the ruling class. His theories were debunked time and time again but nobody was interested.

For example, he claimed in Capitalism and Freedom that the more capitalist an economy is, the more equal it is. I mean, that could literally be framed as one of the most stupid things any human being has ever written.

When it comes to economics, Friedman is one of my favorites since Adam Smith. I've looked into the Libertarian economists and Friedman seems the most realistic and least idealistic of them all (of course, more realistic and least idealistic than any popular economist.)

Marx's Communism was almost pure ideology. Not that his philosophy is, necessarily, wrong, and in many ways I agree with him. But Marx did not seem to be focused on realistic economics or even realistic portrayals of human beings. Marx is focused far more on a utopia, one that I sort of agree with (I still believe in property rights, though), than he is on trying to create a realistic economic system like Friedman was.

Ah, "realistic". That word which is basically like a blank Scrabble tile and can be used in place of a sound argument.

I don't care if it's right because it's not realistic!!! Lol.

Listen pal, if there is one thing we have learned about life it is that it adapts to its environment. For the first 100,000 or so years we lived, slept and ate in groups. That means, at one time, capitalist economics were completely unrealistic.

Exactly, Friedman was excellent economist and I have read couple of books written by him in the college. I once wrote an essay on Friedman with the help of dissertation writing help online. I really inspired by his ideas and wonderful way of providing solution to the crashing economy.

I have connected with a affordable ghostwriting services provider agency and I want to say on this topic that, Senators often speak in the media and oppose Sanders' belief that wages are low at 1% and protect employees. But Sanders was often unaware of his economic illiteracy, something that never occurred to socialists at the time. Fortunately, in order to refute some populist and socialist discourse, some offer economics courses. Among them was Howard Baetjer (Jr.), a physician who rejected Marxism.

Everything has its value. Thanks for sharing this informative information with us. I love to read such an excellent article. geometry dash slope unblocked

The sweet spot is somewhere between total capitalism and communism. The government has to take on “common needs” like defense, infrastructure, MEDICAL! The other stuff will work itself out with free competition (as long as it’s truly fair market).
