I was putting together some clips for a friend of mine to share with her students. Trying to find something accessible to high school students, but still representative of economists I admire and find relevant, I came across the famous Milton Friedman Interview with Phil Donahue. I'm certain I've seen these before (but it's probably been 4-5 years), and listening to the first one, I was amazed at how this could be aired today and be relevant.
Here it is. Go here if you want access to the whole thing.
This was filmed in 1979. If the production quality (and fashion) was better, it could have been filmed a year ago. Anyway, this is a great interview. Did you find anything particularly striking? Are there other Friedman interviews you know of that are timely?
