Here’s C-Span’s quote concerning this fascinating 1 hour long video which is well worth watching, particularly in view of the growing popularity and interest in Hayek: “Milton Friedman sat down in 1994 to discuss…”The Road to Serfdom.” Mr. Friedman…describes its effect on the ever-changing political and social climates of the twentieth century. He discusses the book’s influence on the rise of socialism after World War II, the Reagan and Thatcher administrations in the 1980s and the shift in Eastern Europe from communism to capitalism in the 1990s.”
