Economist, Nobel Prize winner, author and vigorous defender of the free market, Milton Friedman, who passed away in late 2006, would have celebrated his 99th birthday this Sunday.

In his honor, the Reason Foundation has put together this short but great video to commemorate the life of a man whose ideas and ideals remain worth fighting for.
