Henry Payne, editorial cartoonist for The Detroit News and editor of The Michigan View, was the guest speaker at an event honoring Milton Friedman Tuesday at Northwood University, according to the Midland Daily News. The event, held on the 100th anniversary of Friedman’s birth, was co-sponsored by the Mackinac Center.

“Friedman believed that free market economics worked best,” Payne said. “Free market economics became more accepted in the late part of the 20th century after the failure of Russian communism and British socialism.”
