July 2012 sees the 100th anniversary of Milton Friedman’s birth. To mark this occasion, the Centre for Policy Studies organised a celebratory event in the City of London on the evening of Tuesday 3 July.
The evening comprised a panel event, with speakers asked to focus individually on Friedman’s three interlinked, but separate legacies: his contribution to theoretical and academic economics, his role in public policy development and his historical role in the dissemination of free-market ideas.
Part 1 - Professor Richard Epstein - a video tribute
Part 2 - Professor Deepak Lal - Friedman's influence on academic economics
Part 3 - John Redwood MP - The relevance of Friedman's ideas to the current economic & financial crisis
Part 4 - Professor Niall Ferguson - Friedman's significance for free-market thinking
Part 5 - Q&A Session
