This special aired on PBS in 1980. It's based around Nobel Prize winning Economist Milton Friedman and his advocacy for Free Market economies.

The first half of each part is a documentary, with Friedman travelling around the world to countries that have adopted free markets (or related principles), where he interviews participants in said economies, examines the benefits and lack of benefits that free markets exude & compares them to Mixed Economies and/or Socialist/Communist economies.

The second half of each part includes debate with Friedman from unionists, socialists, etc., (even Donald Rumsfeld, in part 2) in the library of the University of Chicago.

In each part, Friedman undeniably backs his case up with explicit evidence and facts clearly showing how we all would be better off and greatly benefit from free markets...

Despite the fact this special is 33 years old, it's absolutely uncanny and fascinating watching this knowing all too well how Government interference in the markets and Socialist/Keynesian policies have clearly destroyed the quality of life as we know it. So many issues presented here are just as relevant today as they were then...

I hope you enjoy it...
