The man is a genius and he knows how to debate.  He sold me on unlicensed doctors much to my surprised.  He seems like a real freedom loving libertarian.

I watched several of his old interviews and the one I enjoyed the most was about welfare and negative income tax.  The welfare system is actually making people poorer, and Friedman suggested a negative income tax which actually sounds simple to implement and much more beneficial.  It would be similar to a basic income.  It feels like the free market has crumbled in the last 50 years.  There is a law for everything now.  It’s illegal to collect rain in some places, two states have laws against selling home-baked goods.    Our rules and regulations our out of control while the lawyers couldn’t be happier.
