friedman economics

Indeed, a major source of objection to a free economy is precisely that it does this task so well. It gives people what they want instead of what a particular group thinks they ought to want. Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself.
—  Milton Friedman, Capitalism and Freedom (1962)

Proponents of the welfare state — egalitarians, communitarians, and liberals alike — have misunderstood the implications of their own principles, which in fact support more market-based or libertarian institutional conclusions than most people realize.

What makes [being an economist] most fascinating is that its fundamental principles are so simple that they can be written on one page, that anybody can understand them, and yet that very few do.
—  Milton Friedman
