Milton Friedman: Free to Choose: Part 3-- Anatomy of Crisis

The Great Depression has been popularly viewed as a failure of capitalism. The stock market crash, the failure of the Bank of the United States, loss of personal savings, were visible symbols supporting this belief. As Friedman explains, the real cause was the unseen failure of government policy and action. Yet this crisis resulting from government failure leads to decades of government expansion.

Fascinating discussion on Keynes, Keynesian economics, and the legacy of Keynes.
