3.0 von 5 Sternen Badly written, garbled ideas, but important historically.
This book gets 3 stars because of its historical importance, not its contents. It consists of an introduction plus the first two chapters stating his political credo and argument (sort of) and then applies the principles in a number of different areas. These latter chapters are essentially reworked from a series of lectures on those principles.

(REAL NAME)   
"Capitalism and Freedom" is not quite as easy a read as another one of Friedman's fine books, "Free to Choose," but, it is still accessible to non economic majors. Friedman sets forth some of his classic views in this book such as the negative income tax and free trade. One of his most interesting discussions is his questioning of the role of state universities and colleges. He likens the low tuitions at these public institutions to scholarships and wonders why those who go to public, as opposed to private universities deserve such scholarships. He raises, in 1963, a topic that is timely now... school vouchers. Most controversially, Friedman believes that almost all professional licensing should be done away with. In other words, he believes the free market can protect the consumer and that even licensing of physicians may not be necessary. In fact, such licensing may stifle innovation. Whether o9r not you agree with Friedman, this book raises fascinating questions and provides well thought out answers.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Very good defense of the free market, 25. September 1999
Von Ein Kunde
This book quite concisely demonstrates Milton Friedman's gift as an economist. It, however, also depicts his inferiority to Hazlitt in terms of writing ability. While many of his essays and points are very interesting and precise, the book is VERY dry. One should not let the small size fool them when purchasing this book, it takes quite a commitment and interest in the subject to make it through the book. That said, Friedman elucidates just what capitalism is and should be. He does believe in some government, however, he argues (and quite successfully) that it should be as limited and nonactivist as possible. I certainly recommend this for anyone interested in just why Milton Friedman (and other laissez-faire capitalists) thinks the way he does. Henry Hazlitt's, "Economics in One Lesson" is a less difficult read and is also better constructed. I would recommend that as prerequisite for tackling this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Vintage, yet compact, Friedman, 24. Mai 1999
Von Ein Kunde
In the tradition of Hayek, Friedman's Capitalism and Freedom attempts to show the dangers of centralized power. Although it is rather short, much like the Road to Serfdom, and lacks the comprehensiveness of a Free to Choose (also by Milton and Rose Friedman) it still comes across rather forcefully. His attention to principle's, something lacking in our 'pragmatic' politics of today, and his ability to come to logical conclusions is remarkable.
I gave the book five stars because I welcome such analysis and believe the book to have achieved what it set out to do (at varying points in the book Friedman would point out that this book is not meant to be 'thorough' in the sense of a complete exposition and refers the reader to alternate books for further discussion). A must read for all politicians and government types alike (whether in Canada or abroad).

3.0 von 5 Sternen Badly written, garbled ideas, but important historically., 1. August 1998
Von Ein Kunde
This book gets 3 stars because of its historical importance, not its contents. It consists of an introduction plus the first two chapters stating his political credo and argument (sort of) and then applies the principles in a number of different areas. These latter chapters are essentially reworked from a series of lectures on those principles.
Obviously, he's very pro capitalism (without explaining what he thinks capitalism is or its benefits are), which is contradictory as he is also explicitly against concentration of power (mainly because of the dangers of the powers abuse). His political philosophy and notion of freedom is shallow, and if you have read original works on and the history of libertarianism may appear laughable. As I understand it, the work was originally not thought much of at the time of release but acquired respectability over time with the acceptance of chicago-school economics in the political domain.
The work is full of non-sequitors and sta! tements of ideological position without substantiation. It is useful however historically, as an important statement of where Freidman and the Chicago school of economic thought are coming from,and would be useful to read for perspective before his better written later books such as Free to Choose.
His basic position is that the government should be limited in scope to protection of freedom (from socialist forces), making and enforcing laws and ensuring private contracts are honoured, and to foster competitive markets. Furthermore, political power should be decentralised from federal to state and state to local. He doesn't think substantive issues can be resolved at the ballot box, and so advocates the free market over democracy for deciding substantive issues. He focuses on his notion of freedom and the preeminence of market forces in facilitating it.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Capitalism and Freedom: Fortieth Anniversary Edition (Taschenbuch)
Though I am more of the Austrian free-market bent, this book is indispensable for anyone who wants to understand the workings of a society of voluntary cooperation. Friedman was one of the true advocates of free markets and one of the most misunderstood.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The groundwork for freedom, 31. Dezember 1999
The test of time had vindicated Milton Friedman. When this book was published, its ideas and concepts were far from mainstream. Today, the tide has turned decisively in his favor and away from Keynesianism and corporatism. His critical and thoughtful defense of the marketplace and critique of socialism laid the groundwork for the resurgence of the American economy. Friedman is not anti-state, after all he recognizes the need for the state as an impartial umpire. He cautions against relying to heavily upon state intervention as it leads to a consistent reduction in personal freedom.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Illuminating, 4. Mai 2000
It is ironic that the book (an attempt into political theory by a leading economist) has given me some of the answers that I could not find in any Economics textbook. However, one warning: the book, outstanding when it deals with economic issues (International Financial Agreements, Monetary Policy and Fiscal Policy) is weaker in the more "political" chapters. Mr. Friedman justifies public financiation of schooling in terms of neighborhood effects: society as a whole benefits of my going to school, therefore, it should pay for it through taxes. This is of course just an economist's approach to the matter.I suspect the valid justification is more one of priciple: if one of the main sources of inequality is different education (and therefore, ASPIRATIONS), then let's try to promote at least equal opportunities by granting access to school for everybody. For a broader perspective of these subjects, I suggest Ludwig Von Mises' "Liberalism,the classical tradition".

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good, 23. August 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Milton Friedman is a great economist and a good man. His books, especially his Monetary History, have been a great contribution to 20th century thought. In this book he presents a strong case for liberty. For the most part, he is very consistent. However, his stance on education is a bit weak. He seems to miss that public education is a horrible and ultimately destructive institution. Despite this, I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in capitalism. But, I would also have to recommend Sheldon Richman's "Separating School and State" as a supplement.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Best Single Book on Economics available, 21. März 2000
Von Ein Kunde
No other book anywhere is more important for the student of economics. Compared to other books on economics, it is very concise and well written. You will gain more insight per minute of time expended than from almost any other text.
The book is timeless because the principles Professor Friedman explains are bedrock foundations of the Capitalist economic system. In almost all universities you are taught a system of thought that inevitably leads to an emphasis and reliance upon Government and the State, basically, socialism as a solution to our economic problems. Professor Friedman clearly spells out better solutions in which markets can solve our problems more efficiently than Government and Socialism. More important, Friedman shows that only Capitalism is consistent with the concepts of Liberty that motivated the Founding Fathers of the United States, principles that led to the drafting of the Constitution. The book Captialism and Freedom has stood the test of time, and still represents the single best source to obtain an understanding of economic markets and how they work, without jargon or mathematics. Instead, Friedman goes directly to the essence of market economics, and liberty, in a simple and straightforward manner. This book will show you how you can use the economic system to make yourself an independent person, capable of taking advantage of the liberty that free markets promote.
This book will help you understand why the institutions of Government, such as the public schools, the Post Office, and the Federal Reserve Board, inevitably become inefficient and problematic compared to private enterprise solutions. At present, Professor Friedman heads up a foundation which promotes free enterprise within the public school system, referred to as School Choice and Vouchers. The intellectual foundations for this suggested improvement in our public schools were laid in Captialism and Freedom. Finally, Professor Friedman spells out the intellectual foundation for the results of his study of the history of monetary policy and the inevitable problems of the Federal Reserve Board. The problems of the Federal Reserve that were discussed in Professor Friedman's Monetary History of the United States are problems that are inherent in government enterprise, issues that are discussed in Capitalism and Freedom.
This book is a must read for any serious student of Politics or Economics. Also, because the book is written in a simple and straightforward manner, any lay person without training in economics will gain fundamental insight into the structure of the Capitalist system and the inevitable problems of Socialism.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Britische Buchbinder am Werk, 26. Juni 2013
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Ich bewerte hier nicht den Inhalt des Buches, sondern die Äußerlichkeiten der gebundenen Ausgabe. Mein Buch wurde von Lightning Source UK Ltd hergestellt, und jeder, der schon mal ein Buch von denen in der Hand hatte, weiß, was das bedeutet. Für alle anderen: Der Druck ist durchweg unsauber; gerade Linien in den Buchstaben sind oft nicht gerade; an einigen Stellen ist der Druck fast bis zur Unlesbarkeit dünn. Die Bindung ist ebenfalls schlecht; das Buch schließt nicht komplett.
