Government as Dictator – Milton

“A major source of objection to a free economy is precisely that it … gives
people what they want instead of what a particular group thinks they ought to
want. Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in
freedom itself.”
– Milton Friedman
(1912-2006) Nobel Prize-winning economist, economic advisor to President Ronald Reagan, “ultimate guru of the free-market system”
