Friedman Day

Monday January 29th has been officially declared Milton Friedman Day.

Friedman fans are planning all sorts of events to commemorate this great man, but one of the most interesting ideas comes from the Ideachannel, which is holding a "Challenge the Status Quo" contest.

Contestants are asked to produce videos which "challenge government policies or those of your parents. You could challenge urban (or rural) myths. Maybe try to debunk what textbooks or TV reporters claim as fact."

First prize is $5,000.

What we really need, of course, is a political party which will challenge the status quo.
