Some Fun with Milton Friedman

Many may know or heard of Milton Friedman.  He was a economist who passed away in 2006 and was often credited as the intellectual voice behind modern conservative economics.

 He was also funny.  Since we have been dealing with bad economic news since late 2008, allow me to bring a little levity, courtesy of Dr. Friedman.

 Here are a few of may favorites:

"If you put the federal government in charge of the Sahara Desert, in 5 years there'd be a shortage of sand."

“Nothing is so permanent as a temporary government program.”

“Concentrated power is not rendered harmless by the good intentions of those who create it.”

Of course, no discussion of Friedman, no matter how brief, is complete without this short video:
