Created equal by Milton Friedman( Visual )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 failure of socialism( Visual )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 14 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

In a discussion following the documentary, Friedman debates the role of government with David Brooks of the Wall Street Journal and James Galbraith of the University of Texas.

The tyranny of control( Visual )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 14 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
