Having read thousands of books and thousands of government studies, et cetera, allow me to state that this scholar fellow's work is based upon pure garbage! The author suggests: // Friedman identified not with conservatives or the investor class but with small business.\\ Which is why Friedman was an advisor to the bloody, bloody, bloody dictator, Augusto Pinochet's administration? History is important, but history based upon offal stinks! [Real synopsis on //free markets \\: The TNEC study undertaken by the Roosevelt Administration within congress yielded the lawsuit, United States v. Morgan et al., which was quashed during Eisenhower's administration [alleging a conspiracy going back to 1914, whereby the vast majority of corporations were owned in a concentrated fashion by 17 Wall Street firms]. Today, the vast majority of major corporations are majority invested by the Big Four: Vanguard Group, BlackRock, State Street and Fidelity. Where's your free market, Burgin?]
