Friedman on Higher-Ed Subsidies

On July 31, Milton Friedman’s birthday, I gave a talk in Hickory, N.C., on Friedman’s views on higher education. An abbreviated version of that talk has just been published here by the Foundation for Economic Education.

If Friedman were still alive, I have no doubt that he’d be sharply critical of the notion that the U.S. needs to put as many people as possible through college, largely at taxpayer expense.
