Galbraith vs. Friedman

Book covers

The Age of Uncertainty is a BBC television series about the evolution of economic thought from Adam Smith onwards. It was written and presented by the post-Keynsian economist John Kenneth Galbraith and broadcast in 1977.

In response the free-market economist Milton Friedman made a TV series called Free to Choose.

Both The Age of Uncertainty and Free to Choose are currently available on YouTube. Books associated with the two series are in UEA Library.

Also, Joseph Stiglitz writes about Galbraith and Mark Skousen writes about Friedman in the Christian Science Monitor.
