Milton Friedman

Sunday is the 99th anniversary of the birth of Milton Friedman (1912-2006), one of the greatest champions of freedom and free markets in our time. Among FEE’s first publications was Friedman’s essay demolishing the case for rent control, written with another future Nobel Prize-winner, George Stigler. It was aptly named “Roofs or Ceilings? The Current Housing Problem” (1946).
