I Attended a Marxist University and Became a Capitalist! (w/ Brad Polumbo)

by | May 29, 2022

To the extent that the years between the end of World War II and today are a story of competing economic visions, the short version is this: Karl Marx was wrong, and Milton Friedman was right. Market-oriented reforms over the past several decades have cut severe poverty around the world by more than half. As late as 1980, more than 40% of the world’s population lived in severe poverty, according to World Bank figures. Now, that share is less than 10%. There is simply nothing else in the history of the material affairs of the world that can compare to that.
