Friedman Legacy Day 2013
Please join the Tax Foundation and National Taxpayers Union Foundation for a celebration of the life and work of economist and Nobel laureate Milton Friedman. We'll be toasting him on what would have been his 101st birthday, and highlighting Friedman's ideas on taxes and fiscal policy.
Friedman Legacy Day is a way of remembering Milton Friedman and the impact his ideas have had on our country and the world. For this year's Friedman Legacy Day—observed in many locations across the country on July 31st—the Tax Foundation, the National Taxpayers Union Foundation, and the Friedman Foundation for Educational Choice encourage you to share what you're doing to keep Dr. Friedman's legacy alive.
Using nothing more than your mobile device and the hashtag #Milton101, here are some simple ways you can celebrate Milton Friedman with thousands more worldwide:
- With Instagram, take a photo of your favorite Friedman book and tell others what impact it's had on you. Be sure to tag “edchoice” in your photos so they appear on our instagram.com/edchoice and facebook.com/edchoice pages.
- On Twitter, share your favorite Friedman quotes and stories. Our Twitter handle is @taxfoundation and the Friedman Foundation's handle is @edchoice.
- Post photos from the Friedman Legacy Day party. Again, using Instagram, be sure to tag “edchoice” in your photos.
Remember also to use the hashtag #Milton101 on your posts!
