The failure of socialism ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 18 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.

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

They talk about what services are appropriate from a democratic government, and discuss the pluses and minuses of such government initiatives as the FDA, the USDA, Social Security, Medicare, the minimum wage, and the EPA
Created equal ( Visual )

Milton Friedman argues that quality of opportunity is the key to the vitality of free markets and the preservation of personal freedoms. He explains that although all men may be created equal, this does not mean that everyone will have equal talents or income. He claims that it is the poorer members of society who benefit most from freedom and who seldom see any gain from government programs justified in their name. Following the documentary, Dr. Friedman has a conversation with Michael Kinsley of the New Republic and Thomas Sowell of the Hoover Institution. They debate the desirability and effectiveness of such government initiatives as welfare programs, Head Start, student loans, and the graduated income tax
The tyranny of control ( Visual )
2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Milton Friedman presents his philosophy on free trade through visits to India, Japan and the U.S. He concludes that there is no evidence that government has ever improved on the effectiveness of markets, and in almost all cases government interference has led to disastrous results. 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
Freedom and prosperity ( Visual )
1 edition 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 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
