Milton Friedman

Milton Friedman, 94, passed away today in San Francisco. Here are a Financial Times obituary and a University of Chicago press release (via Chicagoboyz.)

Roundup of reactions:


  • Joe’s Dartblog: “May he rest in peace.”
  • Instapundit links to a number of interviews and profiles.
  • Virginia Postrel: “One of my heros.”
  • Vox Baby: “Without question the leading conservative economist of the 20th century.”
  • Economist’s View: “with all his fame and all the demands on his time, [he] showed he still had time to help a young assistant professor”
  • Brad DeLong: “We will miss him,” plus a timeline of Friedman’s life

Thanks to commenter PGL for links to Vox Baby, Economist’s View, and Brad DeLong.
