Free To Choose 1980 - The Original Series

  1. In “Created Equal” from Free To Choose Milton challenges the audience to consider the dramatic difference between equality of opportunity, equality of outcome and questions government’s role in leveling the playing field for all its citizens. In memorable fashion he concludes: “The society that puts equality before freedom will end up with neither; the society that puts freedom before equality will end up with a great measure of both.” ©1980 (60:00) cc English. Audio: English, Spanish, Portuguese.

  5. “If we could just stop the printing presses, we would stop inflation,” Milton Friedman says in “How to Cure Inflation” from the Free To Choose series.

Free To Choose® began as an award-winning PBS television series featuring Milton Friedman, Nobel Prize-winning economist. Free To Choose was also a book written by Milton and Rose Friedman and published by Harcourt Brace Jovanovich. It was the best selling non-fiction book of 1980. The book and TV series have been translated into over 2 dozen languages.

Free To Choose is about freedom, the interrelationship of personal, political and economic freedom. Free To Choose is about the ideas of Milton and Rose Friedman, ideas that still dominate public policy debates decades after they were first proposed. Free To Choose is about those who refined and continue to extend these ideas. In print, radio, and television, Professor Friedman applied the economic approach to the many challenges of human societies. He has done so in a manner that is both accessible to the average citizen, yet consistent with the best scholarly work.
