Capitalism and Freedom

Managed to read Capitalism and Freedom on holiday. Its very US centric and very to the right but has got some interesting ideas.

Capitalism and Freedom was published nearly two decades after World War II, a time when the Great Depression was still in collective memory. Under the Kennedy and preceding Eisenhower administrations, federal expenditures were growing at a quick pace in the areas of national defense, social welfare, and infrastructure.

Capitalism and Freedom introduces the idea of how competitive capitalism can help to achieve economic freedom”
