From the Freedom Foundation’s release:
RELEASE: Freedom Foundation Host Friedman Day Event in Seattle
This evening, the Freedom Foundation will host a Friedman Day reception at Columbia Towers in Seattle. The event honors the late Milton and Rose Friedman and their contribution to promoting free markets.
The guest speaker for the evening is Dr. Michael Munger from Duke University. Dr. Munger will present a paper that explores a new concept for what defines a transaction as “voluntary”—an idea at the very core of our understanding of freedom. His proposal offers intriguing possibilities for bridging the divide between supporters and skeptics of free markets. Agree or disagree, the talk is sure to provoke a better understanding of economics and appreciation of the challenges of policymaking.
”It is an honor to celebrate the legacy of Milton and Rose Friedman, two amazing and innovative thinkers who did so much for economic freedom and educational choice,” said Trent England, vice president of policy at the Freedom Foundation. “The Friedmans are important because they were not ivory tower intellectuals, but cared about putting ideas into practice to help everyday people. Dr. Munger has likewise worked to make the idea of voluntary exchange correspond better with ‘common sense,’ offering valuable insights to policymakers and anyone who cares about human freedom.”
The event is sponsored by the Friedman Foundation for Educational Choice and is also cosponsored by the Discovery Institute. Recently, the Freedom Foundation partnered with the Friedman Foundation to discover what Washington voters believe about educational choice. Read about more about the poll here.
