Capitalism and Freedom

Capitalism and Freedom by Milton Friedman

Capitalism and Freedom is a 1962 book by Milton Friedman about the relationship between a free market economy and political liberty, with a strongly conservative and anti-government perspective. Central to Friedman's thesis is the notion that political freedom necessitates economic freedom, and that a government must therefore protect capitalism. Friedman examines a number of economic and social programs, arguing against most social and welfare programs, licensing doctors, public education in favor of vouchers, and for a flat income tax.
