Milton Friedman's Influence 

In his impact on freedom and liberty there may have been no one greater than Milton Friedman. You can tell how important he was by the number of organizations and people paying their respects. Yesterday, we referenced the Cato Institute, whose building on Massachusettes Avenue in Washington, D.C. should probably be named after him. Here is more reaction from:

The Institute for Justice

The Heritage Foundation

The Mackinac Center

The Objectivist Center

The Competitive Enterprise Institute

Reason Magazine

Virginia Postrel

The Washington Post

The Editors of the Wall Street Journal, and a very kind article from

The New York Times

My wife and I had the great pleasure of meeting Milton Friedman and his wife Rose at a Cato event years ago. They were so nice and respectful to everyone who came by to say hello.
