Dynamist Blog


I spent the day at the Dallas Fed's "Free to Choose" conference. Aside from attending, I subbed for Amity Shlaes of the Financial Times (and previously the WSJ) as a panel moderator, thereby assuring that Friedman's journalistic legacy was represented along with his more obvious contributions to economic science and policy entrepreneurship. His old Newsweek columns back had a big effect on me and, I believe, on Amity as well.

Tyler Cowen has blogged a bit about the conference. He focuses on an exchange between Milton Friedman and Gary Becker regarding whether the government should be in the money business.

Tyler also links to the conference blogging of Matt Mullenweg, whom I met this afternoon. His blog has lots of photos and will probably include one of Matt and me later.
