Capitalism and Freedom

by Milton Friedman

Capitalism and Freedom

Milton Friedman

Overview

The victory of the West's capitalism over Soviet socialism in the Cold War cemented the former as the leading system. Government leaders and scholars initially both agreed that this was the way to go. Margaret Thatcher proposed that there was no alternative at the time.

But now, in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis, politicians and citizens are questioning whether the risks of this economical standard are worth it. On the other hand, the tenets of communism are back on the rise.

In Capitalism and Freedom, Friedman teaches the benefits of capitalism. He also reveals how monopolies, poorer living standards, and inequality all result when politicians get excessively involved in the economy.
