A great light has gone out
I'm sad to say that Milton Friedman, a transformative economist and proponent of freedom, died today, at age 94.

Though he lived a long and successful life, the world is poorer without him.

My thoughts and prayers go out to his wife and partner, Rose Friedman.

UPDATE [11/16/2006 - 15:35]: The Wall Street Journal is offering two audio files of conversations with Milton Friedman, explaining some of his economic theories. I highly recommend taking a listen.
