David Friedman's Defense of His Father
By David Henderson
David Friedman’s latest post is titled “Austrian Fantasy.” It’s well worth reading.
In the post, David defends his father from Lew Rockwell’s statement that the whole world is reading Murray Rothbard and that outside of mainstream economics, Milton “is almost a nobody.” Yes, Lew actually said that. So David goes about his defense the way he always has and his father always did: look at the numbers.
What I really like about his post, besides his empirical precision, is the passion and love he shows for his late father, Milton Friedman.
