5.0 out of 5 stars The brilliance of Milton's intellect shines on almost every page, 27 May 2011
By 
This review is from: Free to Choose: A Personal Statement (Paperback)
In a democratic country every voter can influence the scope and style of Government in their country by participating in elections. This book provides the definitive explanation of the relative advantages of the Free Market compared to Government Intervention. In essence, the argument for more or less Government intervention into the lives of citizens. This is the fundamental issue facing society today. Anybody intending to vote and especially everybody who has been or expects to be elected to public office should read this book and understand the arguments presented.

Milton Friedman, winner of the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics, wrote this book with his wife Rose and created a companion TV series. His essential thesis is that while Free Markets and Capitalism have obvious problems, no other system yet invented offers a better solution. In particular he offers compelling arguments that the poor and less fortunate are far better off in a free society with free markets than they are under a system of Government control such as Socialism even when those in favour of Government intervention have good intentions. The brilliance of Milton's intellect shines on almost every page and makes this book a great read.

Milton will challenge many opinions you hold and will open your mind to new ways at looking at problems. I read a lot and this book is the most valuable I have read so far. Milton's earlier book "Capitalism and Freedom" is very valuable too. It is probably best to read it before "Free to Choose."
