“Why Government Is The Problem”: Milton Friedman, #1

“Why Government Is The Problem”: Milton Friedman, #1

The following was written by Milton Friedman in his Essays in Public Policy. These were  published in Feb.  1993.

You can be sure, now over a generation later, his worst fears have been realized.

It is a killing problem that most Americans either do not know it, they don’t care, or they are politically benefiting from it.


The United States has a great heritage and a great history. Since the beginning of our republic, every generation has been better schooled than its predecessor and has had a higher standard of living.

The coming generation threatens to be the first for which that is not true, and that would be a major tragedy.

Milton Friedman.
