Capitalism and Freedom: Fortieth Anniversary Edition

Portada
University of Chicago Press, 2002 M11 15 - 208 páginas
Selected by the Times Literary Supplement as one of the "hundred most influential books since the war"

How can we benefit from the promise of government while avoiding the threat it poses to individual freedom? In this classic book, Milton Friedman provides the definitive statement of his immensely influential economic philosophy—one in which competitive capitalism serves as both a device for achieving economic freedom and a necessary condition for political freedom. The result is an accessible text that has sold well over half a million copies in English, has been translated into eighteen languages, and shows every sign of becoming more and more influential as time goes on.

Crítica de los usuarios - Marcar como inadecuado

Podría decirse que es falaz y manipulador hasta la náusea, pero la mejor crítica a este libro no está en estas líneas, sino en las calles que hoy se llenan de parados, en el aumento de la pobreza y la desigualdad, en el deterioro galopante de la democracia, en la vulneración de los derechos humanos que sucede diariamente en las letrinas del mercado global. La mejor crítica a este libro es una realidad que desmiente cada una de sus tesis. Se ha dicho sobre Friedman que es el ejemplo vivo de que las ideas tienen consecuencias, lamentablemente, las ideas abanderadas por este individuo han contribuido a incrementar la barbarie del mundo en el que vivimos.
