The Mission of the Manhattan Institute is
to develop and disseminate new ideas that
foster greater economic choice and
individual responsibility.

 

"What impressed me most about Milton Friedman was that he could express his revolutionary ideas in such simple and practical terms. As a think tank whose mission is to promote ideas that foster greater economic choice, the Manhattan Institute follows a path illuminated by Milton Friedman's brilliance."

—Lawrence Mone, President

 

In Cooperation with
The Donald and Paula Smith Family Foundation

One of the greatest proponents of individual freedom and individual choice, Milton Friedman was a teacher, scientist, author, revolutionary intellectual, and winner of the 1976 Nobel Prize in economics. On January 29th, numerous events are being organized to celebrate Milton Friedman's impact on American life and business and the spread of the benefits of free markets to nations around the globe. As part of this commemoration, the Manhattan Institute has gathered a number of respected figures who will discuss the Friedman legacy and celebrate the life of this extraordinary champion of individual and economic freedom.
