520 |a Milton Friedman's work was instrumental in the turn toward free markets that defined the 1980's, and his defenses of capitalism and freedom resonated with audiences around the world. Burns tells his extraordinary story, providing context for his groundbreaking work on everything from why dentists earn less than doctors, to the causes of the Great Depression, to the vital importance of the money supply, to inflation and the limits of government planning and stimulus. In exploring Friedman's key role in creating a new economic vision and a modern American conservatism, she provides a revelatory biography of an architect of our times. -- adapted from jacket
