The first major TV series featuring Milton Friedman, Nobel Prize-winning economist. These programs, filmed on location around the world, have helped millions of people understand the close relationship between the ideas of human freedom and economic freedom. The interaction between those ideas has created in the United States the richest and freest society the world has ever known. Milton Friedman sees this success threatened by the tendency in the last few decades to assume that government intervention is the answer to all problems. In these programs, which first aired on January 11, 1980, Dr. Friedman focuses on basic principles. How do markets work? Why has socialism failed? Can government help economic development? The 1980 version consists of 10 one-hour programs

Milton Friedman examines how Hungary and Czechoslovakia are rebuilding their collapsed economies. He argues that Eastern European countries must accept that governments create no wealth and that free, private markets are the only road to prosperity. 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
