''It’s a funny thing.''

Excerpt / Quote

Milton Friedman
Cato Institute, speech at the opening of its new building, May 1993

"It’s a funny thing.

After the fall of communism, everybody in the world agreed that socialism was a failure.

Everybody in the world, more or less, agreed that capitalism was a success.

And every capitalist country in the world, apparently, deduce from that, that what the West needed was more socialism!"
