  4. Teacher, scientist, author, intellectual, and winner of the 1976 Nobel Prize in Economics, Milton Friedman was one of the 20th century's greatest proponents of free markets and individual liberty. The Power of Choice tells the story of his life. Overcoming almost universal opposition to his unconventional views, Friedman persevered, until eventually, many of his ideas came to be widely accepted. He lived to see those ideas transform economic theory and practice, inspiring changes that have improved the lives of millions of people worldwide.

    Through interviews with leading economists and policymakers such as Alan Greenspan and Estonia's Prime Minister, Mart Laar, The Power of Choice explores Friedman's tremendous influence on policy - and daily life - in Estonia, Chile, and the United States. This 90-minute documentary, which premiered on public television January 2007, includes a bonus interview with Milton Friedman and Bob Chitester, creator of the Free To Choose television series.

  5. This short teaser for the Power of Choice sites Milton's own views on the work of a scholar. To be cited long after he is now gone is to be the greatest honor that he or any other scholar could ask.
