Free to Choose: Ideas for All Time $49.95

With great good humor, Milton Friedman often framed his economic advice in ways that everyone could understand. This centennial collection of twelve newly mastered DVDs comprises a unique tribute to the “Winning Ideas of Milton and Rose Friedman;” “Winning” because they have and continue to withstand the test of time. The Economist called him, “the most influential economist of the second half of the 20 century,” but Milton and Rose referred to themselves simply as, “Two Lucky People.” This collection contains many memories of the life they lived together, and the powerful ideas that resulted from that relationship.

Disc One: I Remember Milton, A collection of special stories from those who knew Milton and Rose best, people like former Secretary of State George Shultz, Nobel Prize laureate Gary Becker and Bob Chitester, creator of the award-winning series Free To Choose. ©2012 (30:00) cc English. Audio: English. In Tyranny of the Status Quo Milton is joined by seven young adults to explore the role of government as an agent for social change. ©1987 (90:00) cc English. Audio: English.

Disc Two: “The Power of the Market,” in the first program of the original 1980 public television series, Free To Choose, Milton Friedman explores how the power of the free market is derived from the idea of liberty in the American Declaration of Independence and the idea of economic freedom in Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations. ©1980 (60:00) cc English. Audio: English, Spanish, Portuguese.

Disc Three: In “The Tyranny of Control,” from the original 1980 Free To Choose series, Milton Friedman shows how government planning and detailed control of economic activity lessens productive innovation and consumer choice. ©1980 (60:00) cc English. Audio: English, Spanish, Portuguese. Even Milton Friedman had to audition for his television debut. This disc contains a rare, behind-the-scenes look at his very first “performance” for the camera: Milton's Screen Test. ©1976 (5:00) cc English. Audio: English.

Disc Four: In “Anatomy of Crisis,” from Free To Choose, Milton shows how the Great Depression actually resulted from government failure, and led to decades of government expansion. ©1980 (60:00) cc English. Audio: English, Spanish, Portuguese.

Disc Five: “From Cradle to Grave.” The Free To Choose program in which Milton examines the welfare state, and shows how good intentions are corrupted by bad means. ©1980 (60:00) cc English. Audio: English, Spanish, Portuguese. Also on this disc, a promotion for Free To Choose. In “Why I Did It” Friedman explains how he was persuaded by Bob Chitester to undertake the series. Milton’s remarks also explain why the series remains as important today, as when it was produced. ©1980 (8:00) cc English. Audio: English.

Disc Six: In “Created Equal” from Free To Choose Milton challenges the audience to consider the dramatic difference between equality of opportunity, equality of outcome and questions government’s role in leveling the playing field for all its citizens. In memorable fashion he concludes: “The society that puts equality before freedom will end up with neither; the society that puts freedom before equality will end up with a great measure of both.” ©1980 (60:00) cc English. Audio: English, Spanish, Portuguese. Disc Seven: In “What’s Wrong with Our Schools” from Free To Choose, Milton asks a question even more relevant today than it was in 1980. The answer now as then, Milton would contend, can be found in parental choice and responsibility -- values that cannot be deeded to government. ©1980 (60:00) cc English. Audio: English, Spanish, Portuguese. Free To Choose Fun Promo- takes us behind the scenes, as Rose and Milton tape a promotional spot for their series. ©1980 (2:00) cc English. Audio: English. Disc Eight: From the original Free To Choose series Milton asks: “Who Protects the Consumer?” Many government agencies have been created for this purpose, yet they do so by restricting freedom, stifling beneficial innovation, and eventually become agents for the groups they have been created to regulate. What's wrong here, and why is it still happening today? ©1980 (60:00) cc English. Audio: English, Spanish, Portuguese.

Disc Nine: “Who Protects the Worker?” asks Friedman in Free To Choose. Here in the complete program from the original series, Milton explains that although both unions and government attempt to protect their workers, in a free society- there is a still better way. ©1980 (60:00) cc English. Audio: English, Spanish, Portuguese. Included on this disc Milton and Rose discuss how he came to develop the habit of maintaining civility toward those with whom he disagreed. (11:00) cc English. Audio: English.© 1980 Free To Choose Enterprise, © 2012 Free To Choose Network

Disc Ten: “If we could just stop the printing presses, we would stop inflation,” Milton Friedman says in “How to Cure Inflation” from the Free To Choose series. Now as then, there is only one cause of inflation, and that is when governments print too much money. Milton explains why it is that politicians like inflation, and why wage and price controls are not solutions to the problem. ©1980 (60:00) cc English. Audio: English, Spanish, Portuguese.

Disc Eleven: In the final program from Free To Choose -“How to Stay Free,” we learn that democracies always self-destruct when government actions physically and morally bankrupt a nation; when citizens insist government legislate an end to misery and want. Includes an interview of Milton by Meet the Press host Lawrence Spivak ©1980 (60:00) cc English. Audio: English, Spanish, Portuguese. Also included on this disc is a little-known birthday song about Milton Friedman by former Secretary of State George Shultz. ©2002 (2:00) cc English. Audio: English.

Disc Twelve: Broadcast following the success of Free To Choose, this public television special: The Three Letter Word: TAX depicts debate of the contentious balanced budget/tax limitation amendment. ©1987 (60:00) cc English. Audio: English. Also included on the disc is: The PRC Forum: Milton Friedman, in which Dr. Friedman urges alertness to the difference between false and real problems concerning government. ©1987 (60:00) cc English. Audio: English.
