July 31, 2010, would have been Milton Friedman's 98th birthday. To honor his vision and the impact he has had on our society, The Foundation for Educational Choice collaborated with policy groups from around the world to hold events in Professor Friedman's honor on Friday, July 30. The Show-Me Institute was among the groups participating.
In the three years since the first "Friedman Day," we have seen a wide variety of events. There have been field trips focused on the prosperity of a free market, a live web chat with Emmy Award winner John Stossel, and viewings of old Friedman videos. There have been events with celebrities and events with children. Most events have been as simple as a luncheon and a presentation.
