"Excellent book, this reviewer has never read a more straightforward and simple statement of the present ills facing our society and what we as citizens in a democracy must do about them" (Chicago Sun Times). Free to Choose is an economic response to John Kenneth Galbraiths The Age of Uncertainty, and it helped win Milton Friedman the Nobel Prize in Economics in 1976.
