Milton Friedman and his wife Rose team up to write a most convincing and readable guide that illustrates the crucial link between Adam Smith’s capitalism and the free society. They show how freedom has been eroded and prosperity undermined through the rapid growth of governmental agencies, laws, and regulations. While a large central government may have good intentions, the results it produces are lamentable.

“Noteworthy for its clarity, logic, candor, and unequivocal stand on political implications.” New York Times Book Review
“Milton Friedman puts verities back into focus and puts us back in touch with how a free and abundant society can work—if we let it. That is why he deserved his Nobel Prize in economics, and it is why you should read this book.” Reader’s Digest
“Excellent book…This reviewer has never read a more straightforward and simple statement of the present ills facing our society and what we as citizens in a democracy must do about them.” Chicago Sun Times
“Powerful.” Christian Science Monitor
