Free to Choose

“ I still remember when I first saw an Estonian translation of Friedman’s famous book. I remember looking at the name, Free to Choose, and thinking that the words ‘free’ and ‘choose’ were both absolutely unthinkable for the communists. When I read the book, the ideas seemed very logical to me.”

 Mart Laar
Former Prime Minister of Estonia
