...But you'll have a SHINY NEW COAT!

Friedman's 'heresy' hits mainstream
A brief San Francisco Chronicle profile of Milton Friedman from last June:
President Bush's proposal to incorporate private accounts in the giant retirement program is easily traced to Friedman.

"He's the originator of it and all the discussion can be traced back to him," said the Cato Institute's Michael Tanner, a leading advocate of partial privatization.

"I've always been opposed to Social Security," Friedman said in a recent interview at his home in San Francisco. "I think it's a very unethical program. "
