The Legacy of Milton Friedman as Teacher

Milton Friedman is beyond question the most famous living economist of the 20th century. He is closely associated with the doctrine of 'monetarism' which has been adopted by many governments around the world. This important two volume collection presents a major study of Milton Friedman's outstanding contribution to economics as a teacher at the University of Chicago. It shows how Friedman's distinctive ideas about money, markets and economic theory, communicated in the classroom and in thesis committees, influenced an entire generation of economists. It also reveals his influence on graduate-education practices at the University of Chicago and elsewhere.
