Milton Friedman Quotes:
"The most important single central fact about a
free market is that no exchange takes place unless
both parties benefit."
"Nobody spends somebody else's money as carefully as
he spends his own. Nobody uses somebody else's
resources as carefully as he uses his own. So if you
want efficiency and effectiveness, if you want
knowledge to be properly utilized, you have to do it
through the means of private property."
"Governments never learn. Only people learn."
"So the question is, do corporate executives,
provided they stay within the law, have
responsibilities in their business activities other
than to make as much money for their stockholders as
possible? And my answer to that is, no they do not"
"The only way that has ever been discovered to have
a lot of people cooperate together voluntarily is
through the free market. And that's why it's so
essential to preserving individual freedom."
