Description
One of the most important economists of the twentieth century, Milton Friedman received the Nobel Memorial Prize for Economic Science in 1976, the National Medal of Science and the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1988. He and his wife Rose are widely known for changing the climate of intellectual opinion in the United States and around the world with their firm belief that personal freedom is the supreme good in economic, political, and social relations.

Through their books and television programs, and Milton's columns in Newsweek, the Friedmans' views have been influential, widely debated, and gradually accepted. When Capitalism and Freedon the first book to expound the Friedmans views on public policy issues, was published in 1962, it was ignored by the national media. By contrast, Free to Choose -- a book based on their popular television program and published the year Ronald Reagan was elected -- became the best-selling nonfiction book of that year.

Milton and Rose have experienced many of the major events that have shaped the history of the modern world -- from the Great Depression to the fall of the Berlin Wall. Milton Friedman served as unofficial adviser to presidential candidate Barry Goldwater and Presidents Nixon and Reagan.

In Two Lucky People, Rose and Milton Friedman provide a memorable and lively account of their lives, the people they knew, and the work they shared. Their involvement with world leaders and many of this century's most important public policy issues moves their memoir beyond the merely personal and makes fascinating reading for anyone interested in the history of twentieth-century ideas.
