The thousands of Milton and Rose Friedman fans out there will be happy to know about the Hoover Institution’s “Collected Works of Milton Friedman” project showcasing the lifetime work of Milton and Rose Friedman. Maybe “happy” would an understatement, and “ecstatic” would be a better adjective, to find such a well-organized (searchable and sortable) treasure of Milton and Rose Friedman’s archived books, columns, photos, quotations, audio and video materials, tributes and accolades, congressional testimonies, all of his academic articles, etc. For example:
1. Milton Friedman wrote 121 op-eds that appeared in the Wall Street Journal between 1961 and 2006, here is a complete list (with full text) of those op-eds that can be sorted by title and date.
2. Between 1966 and 1984, Milton Friedman wrote more than 300 op-eds for Newsweek, and those are available here (full text), sortable by date and title.
3. Friedman wrote 22 op-eds that appeared in the New York Times between 1964 and 2002, and those are available here.
4. Here’s a comprehensive list of more than 800 of Milton Friedman’s popular and public policy columns and articles that appeared between 1943 and 2006.
5. Here is a database of Milton Friedman quotations, conveniently organized by 29 different topics with the following description:
It’s a testament to Milton Friedman’s influence and legacy that many contemporary politicians, economists, and academicians still ask, “What would Milton say?” Rather than attempting to put words into Milton’s mouth, why not let Milton answer that question himself? Click on a topic to see Milton’s thoughts on issues ranging from bureaucracy to taxes.
6. Here is a list and database of Milton Friedman’s congressional testimony starting in 1942.
7. Here is a list and database of 250 articles of Milton Friedman that appeared in academic journals and other publications between 1935 and 2005.
8. Here’s a database of thousands of photographs and slideshows of Milton and Rose Friedman through the years, including the one above taken at the Nobel Ball in 1976.
And the resources above are just a fraction of what’s now available online at the Hoover Institution’s “Collected Works of Milton Friedman.” Enjoy!

One of the great mistakes is to judge policies and programs by their intentions rather than their results. ― Milton Friedman
After 50 years of lowered tariffs and free trade the results are ...
- We now have 100 million Americans on food stamps.
- We offshored countless American industries.
- We have huge trade good deficits.
- We are deep in government dept.
- We've had record unemployment 24% according to shadow stats.com.
- The ratio of working age employed has fallen to record lows.
- Many of the working are underemployed, working at part time jobs with little or no benefits.
- Real wages have stagnated.
- The American dream of home ownership has become a nightmare.
- China is using the proceeds from our huge trade deficit with them to buy our equities.
- More people are dependent on government than ever before.
Look at the results, indeed. It's time to bring some common sense back to Friedman's trade policies.

Kinda' wish Friedman was still around to respond to your post hoc ergo propter hoc fallacies.

“Business” academia in the US supports globalism, and is set up to perpetually promote it.
University of Chicago, Friedman’s “home base”, was founded and endowed by the Rockefellers.

(We have to fix things ourselves)
Last year, I got around to YouTube’s collection of Milton Friedman videos.....and I have to admit that he is the smartest economics guy that I’ve ever come across. In three minutes....he could take the most intense topic and convert it into simplified language that made sense.
Well, at least Soros wasn’t involved. /s

You are lucky you disguised it . . . our statists would be all over you.

For a minute I thought folks were going to try and characterize Friedman as anti-trade the way some try and portray Reagan as favoring import tax hikes. It's clear; Freidman may have once liked withholding taxes, but he always backed private enterprise.
When he died, a select few of us tried to portray him as pro-illegal immigration. The problems that people have with Friedman really boil down to how much they want the government to control our lives. That illegal immigration “gambit” was bullcrap from bullcrappers.

Milton Friedman was a great man, and I hope someone some day records his words into audiobook form for the Public Domain.
Hopefully, The Hoover Institute is making these writings available to the Public Domain.
