Friedman's book, "Free to Choose," and his PBS series of the same name were both strong influences on our thinking on economics and politics. He did a tremendous job making the case for freedom and individual choice and for capitalism as the best system in existence for organizing human activities.
Nebraska's NETV (12) is showing "The Power of Choice" at 9:00 PM CDT. NET2 will rebroadcast the show on Jan 30 at 2:00 AM; 10:00 AM; and 3:00 PM. I've already set my DVR; don't miss it.
