Milton Friedman is considered one of the nation’s foremost Conservative economist. But Mr. Friedman says this, “I never consider myself as a conservative economist…”
“Conservative means conservative, keeping thinks as they are. I don’t want to keep things as they are. The true conservatives today are the people who are in favor of ever bigger government. The people who call themselves liberals today, ‘the New Dealers’, they are the true conservatives because they want to keep going on the same path we are going on.”
Milton Friedman Calls Himself a Liberal
He says, “I call myself a liberal in the true sense liberal. In the sense of which means and of and pertaining to freedom.”
Milton wants to evoke change, change is liberalism. Change from Big Governement spending, one which allows people to spend their own money. Milton Friedman Explains Spending. He argues that people are the best stewards of their own money and government is the worst spender of money.
Milton Friedman would be proud of the change that the miss-named Conservative movement is making today. If he were alive, I am sure he would be at the Chicago Tea Party. I am sure he is smiling today.
