“Freedom and Choice” is the theme of the fourth annual Milton Friedman Day observance to be held Friday, July 30, from 5-7pm at the Sheraton Burlington Conference Center.
The speaker is Bill Sayre of Bristol, a former student of Nobel Prize winning economist Milton Friedman at the University of Chicago. Sayre, an economist and businessman, is the former chair of Associated Industries of Vermont and a regular commentator on True North Radio.
The event, part of the Sheraton Economic Series, honors what would be the 98th birthday of Prof. Friedman, a one time resident of Ely, Vermont. It is hosted by the Sheraton Burlington, sponsored by the Ethan Allen Institute, and cosponsored by the Lake Champlain Regional Chamber of Commerce, Vermont Economy Newsletter, Vermont Business Magazine, and Vermont Tiger.
“In an era when we seem to be afflicted with ever more government mandating ever more choices for citizens, it’s useful – and indeed inspirational – to review the life and thought of Milton Friedman, a true apostle of liberty”, said EAI vice president John McClaughry.
The Sheraton Economic Series is open to the public and no admission charge or reservation is required,
