Milton Friedman on Economics: Selected Papers” collects a variety of Friedman's papers on topics in economics that were originally published in the “Journal of Political Economy,” Opening with Friedman's 1977 Nobel Lecture, the volume spans nearly the whole of his career, incorporating papers from as early as 1948 and as late as 1990. An excellent introduction to Friedman's economic thought, “Milton Friedman” will be essential for anyone tracing the course of twentieth-century economics and politics.
