Choice Is A Bad Thing 

Edwuardo Porter of the New York Times has noticed that the power of individual choice is now at the center of public policy prescriptions from fixing healthcare to public education and he does not like what he sees.

But don't ask the general public if they agree with him. On a cab drive from Cambridge back to our Boston hotel I asked the driver where he was from. When he said Chile I asked him if he had a private social security account since the Cato Institute is basing their plan on this Country's experience. He replied that he certainly did and then he became excited and said thank god for Milton Friedman. We all laughed.
