Episode 6 – Milton Friedman Speaks – Money and Inflation (Podcast)

Inflation is blamed on many things but it has only one cause. It is a monetary phenomenon. Inflation occurs when the quantity of money increases faster than the quantity of goods. Why does the money supply increase? Very often it does so to enable the government to pay its bills without raising taxes. There’s only one real cure for inflation. It is a cure that’s easy to describe but difficult to apply. The government must reduce spending and print less money. The alternatives are both recession and double-digit inflation. In Milton Friedman’s own words, “Inflation is a disease. It’s a …

Episode 5 – Milton Friedman Speaks – What is Wrong with the Welfare State? (Podcast)

The welfare state is an attempt to “do good” with someone else’s money. The aim may be worthy but the means are faulty. The problem is that you do not spend someone else’s money as carefully as your own. More to the point, it’s impossible to “do good” with someone else’s money without first taking it away from someone else. That implies coercion—the use of bad means to corrupt the good ends of the welfare state. Welfare programs implicitly encourage competition for government funds and create unfortunate divisions and antagonisms in our society that erode individual freedom. We must find …

Episode 4 – Milton Friedman Speaks – The Role of Government in a Free Society (Podcast)

If we are to define the role of government in a free society, we must first specify the needs a government is expected to provide. Defense from foreign enemies and protection of property, including the enforcement of private contracts, are clearly legitimate functions of government. But when we come to two other functions of government—providing a substitute for voluntary cooperation when it appears impossible to achieve, and providing for irresponsible individuals— the justification is much less clear-cut. In a free society people should be able to take risks but should not be able to force others to pay the consequences. …

Science fiction fans will have to keep on imagining with Free To Choose® Media Executive Editor and Cato Institute Senior Fellow Johan Norberg.

How to Travel with a Salmon.  Out of thousands of tightly-packed titles on the shelves of a used book store in Prince Edward Island, what made this slender paperback jump out at my teenage daughter? A further dive shows how this simple act serves as a microcosm of what we strive for with our non-profit organization. It was not by accident that I took my daughter to a bookstore on vacation.  We must first connect the teen audience to an arena where they can find serendipity.  Exposing teens to “winning ideas” is where we excel and how we will win …
