Disaster Capitalism in Action: milton friedman

University of Chicago Faculty Object to the Proposed Milton Friedman Institute

University of Chicago Faculty, Website, August 11, 2008

In June 2008, the University of Chicago announced it was establishing a $200 million economic research institute to honor Milton Friedman.

Faculty members at the University of Chicago are actively objecting to this institute. See the petition signed by more than 100 faculty members expressing concern about the University of Chicago's rationale and funding for this center.

Check out the faculty's website, where you can also read detailed letters from staff explaining their objections, see reactions from economists, and find helpful background materials.
