If you want to see capitalism in action, go to Hong Kong.

Welcome to the Festival of Frugality Milton Friedman edition.  While working in the field of finance/economics we become cognizant of others who have made an impact in our line of work.  Milton Friedman was born this day in 1912.  He was an economic advisor to Ronald Reagan and his monetary theory influenced the Federal Reserves response to the global financial crisis.  He was named by The Economist as the most influential economist of the second half of the 20th Century.  If you are bored Google his name there is a great deal that he contributed to modern day monetary policy and economics.

Now on to what we have all been waiting for, this weeks picks for the Festival of Frugality.
