Abstract
Milton Friedman, one of the most influential economists of the twentieth century, has recently passed away. He combined the qualities of an outstanding scientist and an ideologue of liberalism. His long-term work in both directions has had a great impact on the economic policy of many countries. In this respect, M. Friedman is on a par with J. M. Keynes, with whom he radically differed in his views on the place of the state in the economy. If Keynes was the main defender of interventionism, then Friedman can be considered the main apologist for the free market and a critic of state intervention in the economy and other areas. To paraphrase the statement of the Friedman many years ago in relation to Keynes, R. Barro, recently declared: “Now we are all preminence”.
