Milton Friedman’s groundbreaking Free To Choose series brought his ideas of individual and economic freedom to millions in 1980. Now, in honor of what would have been his 106th birthday, we are bringing those principles to even more by making it available on Amazon Prime. His most well-known legacy is now easily accessible, and streaming on one of the world’s largest video platforms.

ifatAbout Free To Choose: The Original 1980 TV Series:
Free To Choose® is the ground-breaking PBS television series featuring Milton Friedman, Nobel Prize-winning economist. These programs, filmed on location around the world, have helped millions of people understand the close relationship between the ideas of human freedom and economic freedom. The interaction between those ideas has created in the U.S. the richest and freest society the world has ever known. Milton Friedman sees this success threatened by the tendency in the last few decades to assume that government intervention is the answer to all problems. In these programs, which first aired on January 11, 1980, Dr. Friedman focuses on basic principles. How do markets work? Why has socialism failed? Can government help economic development? The 1980 version consists of 10 one-hour programs.
