13. Friedman was a pinko

These folks are so far beyond the Chicago school they have out-run all actual economic theory.

There are no equations quantifying the confidence fairy. It's just a weird religion now.

14. I wouldn't quite go that far

He suggested a "shock doctrine" program to Chile dictator Augusto Pinochet to create a "market" economy, and - According to his critics, Friedman did not criticize Pinochet's dictatorship at the time, nor the assassinations, illegal imprisonments, torture, or other atrocities that were well known by then.

Let's just say they're all on the same page.

Letting the peons do the hard work of destroying ourselves. The rich sit back and reap the rewards.

...the fantastic Twilight Zone episode, "The Monsters are Due on Maple Street".
