Milton Friedman Discusses Free Trade

Today – July 31st, 2016 – is the 104th anniversary of the birth of Milton Friedman (1912-2006), one of history’s greatest and most influential voices for free markets and free minds.  In this short video (which looks to be from the late 1980s) Friedman promotes free trade.  In it, he notes that while a world without any trade barriers is ideal, absent that ideal it is best for Americans if America pursues a policy of unilateral free trade.
