This year marks the 60th anniversary of the publication of one of the more important educational essays on the principles and power of free markets: "I, Pencil," by Leonard Reed. You can read the essay here -- and we urge you to do so. But if you've only got a couple of minutes to spare, the nearby video features the great Milton Friedman discussing the essay. Give it a look...and remember these lessons, particularly as the economy takes a bigger and bigger role in 2019's political debates.
