Quotation of the Day…

… is from page 146 of Milton & Rose Friedman’s great 1980 book, Free To Choose:

Wherever the free market has been permitted to operate, wherever anything approaching equality of opportunity has existed, the ordinary man has been able to attain levels of living never dreamed of before. Nowhere is the gap between rich and poor wider, nowhere are the rich richer and the poor poorer, than in those societies that do not permit the free market to operate.

DBx: Milton Friedman was born on this date, July 31st, in 1912.
