Policy Forum: “Milton Friedman on business suicide”

I recently posted the following article on the need for theologians to study economics.

In this 1999 article from the CATO Institute, Milton Frieman argues that businessmen tend to make poor decisions regarding their interactions with the government. His main argument: businessmen need to have more diligence in studying what their contributions will achieve, particularly when it comes to government interaction with the economy. His main goal: that people would understand capitalism better than they do. The refrain is a similar one as the article above: for some reason, anyone who can “[read and write]”[1] feels entitled to an opinion on the economy.
