Happy 100th birthday, Milton Friedman
Born on July 31, 1912 in New York to Hungarian Jewish immigrant parents (really, these people get everywhere!) and one of the very few economists who actually deserved his Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences. His analysis cannot be bettered. Sadly, politicians in what is laughingly known as the free world (mind you, things are relative as I remember every time I look at Russia or China) do not have the ability or the courage to follow his ideas at all.
