Milton Friedman


Free market fanatic, friend of Pinochet and tutor of the 'Chicago Boys' Milton Friedman has died aged 94. The economist was the leader of the monetarist school of thought and counted among his followers Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan who followed Friedman's theories in their neo-liberal, free market policy agenda throughout the 1980's.
