Mere Friedman

Måske er det fordi Milton nu har en for særlig fremtrædende libertarianere tænkere særdeles risikabel alder (Mises død som 93-årig; Hayek død som 92-årig), at interviews'ne med ham florerer. Her er ihvertfald endnu ét.

Det er måske læsere af denne blog bekendt, at Friedman i snart tre årtier har boet i San Francisco.

"Asked why he dwells in liberalism's den, Milton Friedman, 92, the Nobel laureate economist and father of modern conservatism, didn't skip a beat.

"Not much competition here," he quipped."

Jeg kunne også godt lide denne her:

"He calls himself an innate optimist, despite the unpopularity of many of his ideas. When he moved to San Francisco in the 1970s, the city was debating rent control, he recalled. So he wrote a letter to The Chronicle saying, "Anybody who has examined the evidence about the effects of rent control, and still votes for it, is either a knave or a fool." What happened? "They immediately passed it," he laughed."

Man kan sige meget om Rand, Mises, Hayek og Rothbard. Men humor var nok ikke deres stærke side (enhver der har set Hayek få latterkrampe af at konstatere, at han er "an old whig" vil vide hvad jeg mener). Det er godt, vi har Friedman …
