    Phil Donahue 31 years ago, proves, like most Liberals, he didn't have a clue. Sad thing is, he never learned since then, either.

    Literally classic. Friedman did over-stroke free enterprise there, though.

    What a great video. I've seen it many times before. Milton Freidman was renowned for making modern liberals look silly.

    Remember those couple years when the Fed employed Monetarism and pegged the money supply instead of interest rates.

    How'd that work out for us?

    Remember the guy who went around the Message Board Political Forum posting random wacky comments in order to hyjack the topic of the thread on subjects he wanted to discuss instead of making his own thread? And face it, your no Milton Freidman. But you think you know better. It's been the downfall of many many many liberals in the past.

    Lol...That wasn't the two year period of monetarism.

    Are you of the impression that Milton supported commodity money?

    No, Monetarists using Friedman's thinking and rules would never, ever, ever consider QE1 or QE2.

    Ever.

    They both involved significant shocks to the money supply.

    Then tell me....and I am 100% genuine.... I freely admit that I suck at Econ 101

    Which formula is best?
    Friedman's or Easing?
    And how/why?

    No.

    I picked up Milton Freidmans Monitary History of the United States years ago while in college. I couldn't even understand it. So I took Macro and Micro economics and tried again. Nope, still couldn't understand Freidman. I am ilequiped to debate monetarism via Freidmans method. I was just playing around with you. Have you read his work? Not his political but scientific? I am assured that you are just another liberal nobody that Freidman could rhetorically smash as he has so many liberal academics, students, and politicians. After kicking so much ass liberals stoped bringing him on to their shows and people debated him in his absence which continues after his death. Then liberals whined when they tried to name a school after him. The Volokh Conspiracy - The Milton Friedman Institute and Ideological Intolerance in Academia:
