Milton Friedman

Milton Friedman (July 31, 1912 – November 16, 2006) was an American economist, statistician and writer. Having taught at the University of Chicago for several decades, Friedman was instrumental in the development of the Chicago school of economics. He spent years challenging socialism and advocating for a free market economic system with limited government. In 1976 he was awarded the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences in part for his work on monetarism.


Fun Fact: Friedman was awarded the National Medal of Science and the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1988.
