Milton Friedman, RIP
Economist and Nobel Prize winner Milton Friedman has passed away today in San Francisco at age 94. Cause of death was heart failure, according to a Bloomberg report quoting his daughter.
His "Capitalism and Freedom" was one of the first handful of serious books I read as a young campus conservative way back in 1969 and from then on he has been a dependable fixture of a giant in the intellectual universe.
May he rest in peace from labors that bore fruit we will all enjoy for generations to come.
