Milton Friedman Has Passed Away

Glenn Reynolds has lots of links; economist Larry Kudlow has some thoughts.

As Glenn writes, “It’s hard to say that someone has been plucked untimely at the age of 94, but it feels that way.”


Update: Mark Steyn, who was scheduled to share a National Review panel with Friedman this week, adds:

He was the principal economic influence on President Reagan, Mrs Thatcher and other leaders determined to reverse the ill-effects of Keynesianism in the west, and through them he became equally influential in post-Soviet eastern Europe. He was one of the most important figures of the age, and, had the Republican Congress understood why, they might still be in power.
