Friedman discusses the core values of libertarian philosophy.

Economist Milton Friedman, recipient of the 1976 Nobel Prize for Economic Science, was one of the most recognizable and influential proponents of liberty and markets in the 20th century, and leader of the Chicago School of economics.

On August 14, 1990, at the International Society for Individual Liberty’s 5th World Libertarian Conference, Milton Friedman took a step back from the details of public policy issues and discussed basic libertarian beliefs and values. “I have no right to coerce someone else,” he said, “because I cannot be sure that I’m right and he is wrong.”
