This paper discusses the TV program "Free to Choose" and analyzes the argument of Rose and Milton Friedman about the power of the market. The primary questions which are addressed include: What is the core of the Friedmans' economic argument; Is the argument reasonable; and Does the author find this argument convincing? This paper then analyzes the viability of the argument and whether it is workable and desirable. The paper states that the fundamental argument used by the Friedmans is that the free market, independent of government interference, maximizes income and opportunities for all. The Friedmans further argue that increasing government size both limits personal freedom and impoverishes the governed.
