Freedom and prosperity( Visual )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Milton Friedman examines how Hungary and Czechoslovakia are rebuilding their collapsed economies.

He says that attempts to find a "third way" between socialism and free markets are doomed from the start. He examines how small businesses in Eastern Europe struggle to survive against the remains of extensive government control. In a discussion following the documentary, Friedman talks further about government and the economy with Gary Becker of the University of Chicago and Samuel Bowles of the University of Massachusetts. They disagree about the results of economic controls in countries around the world, with Friedman defending his thesis that the best government role is the smallest one
The failure of socialism( Visual )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Friedman argues that socialism is based on the premise that people are better off when experts guide their lives. He uses U.S. public education as a case study of the failure of socialism. He endorses a voucher system to give choice and control back to parents because giving individuals the power to choose will lead to better results than centrally planned activity. In a discussion following the documentary, Friedman explores the subject further with Gordon Tullock of the University of Arizona and Henry Levin of Stanford University. They debate what standards government should set for education, the role of public and private schools, the special needs of underprivileged children, and how much control parents should have over the schools
The tyranny of control( Visual )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a discussion following the documentary, Friedman defends his views against Stephen Cohen of the University of California at Berkeley, who believes that economic realities inevitably force all governments to regulate foreign trade. Focusing on the examples of Japan and Germany, Friedman and Michael Walker of the Fraser Institute in Vancouver argue that competition always produces the best results

What few people knew was that this articulate, hard-nosed conservative began her career among socialists and labor union officials, teaching in college affirmative action programs and writing campaign leaflets for the Democratic National Committee." "An Unlikely Conservative provides an insider's view of the presidential appointment process and gives colorful accounts of the affirmative action debacle on university campuses, including the reign of terror Chavez encountered at the hands of Chicano students and activists at the University of Colorado and UCLA. After threats of attacks with bombs and switchblades, Chavez learned quickly that opposing racial quotas and ethnic studies carried a high personal cost."
