Overview

Poucos economistas tiveram uma influência tão grande no curso da humanidade como Milton Friedman. O seu pensamento foi determinante na política monetária de Reagan e Thatcher, nos anos 80 e 90, ou na liberalização económica da China (que posteriormente se alastrou à Índia).

Overview

Poucos economistas tiveram uma influência tão grande no curso da humanidade como Milton Friedman. O seu pensamento foi determinante na política monetária de Reagan e Thatcher, nos anos 80 e 90, ou na liberalização económica da China (que posteriormente se alastrou à Índia). Noutros cantos do planeta, pequenas economias como a Estónia conheceram também um crescimento exponencial ao desregularem e liberalizarem os mercados. Controverso, amado e odiado, Milton Friedman deixou uma marca na história. E o efeito das suas ideias sente-se hoje de maneira particularmente violenta. Com este guia, percebemos o modo como o economista minou o pensamento então prevalecente de Keynes, como inventou novas soluções para combater a inflação, como se opôs ferozmente a um papel excessivamente interventivo do Estado, ou a medidas como o salário mínimo. Obra que se lê de um fôlego, Milton Friedman é essencial para quem procura compreender melhor o modo como hoje funciona a economia global.
