P.S. フリードマンが1980年に北京を訪問した際、「経済的自由は政治的自由の必要条件」と唱えたことは有名な話です。




この部分には私も色々と意見がありますので、経済学に興味がある方は、PDCAカフェにお越しください :-)。


 < Mr. PDCAのボンジュール英語「必要条件」 = 「prerequisite」>




「経済的自由は政治的自由の必要条件?」を英語にすると、「Is economic freedom a prerequisite for political freedom?」となりますね :-)。

PDCA (plan-do-check-action) Diary Vol. 322 "Is economic freedom a prerequisite for political freedom?"

I read a lot of economics books during my college and graduate school days, and I have talked a lot with both monetarists and Keynesian economists.


Monetarists are economists who take the stance that "The economy can be controlled by monetary policy" and the Chicago School, led by the University of Chicago, is famous.


Keynesian comes from the name of Keynes, who is called the greatest economist in the 20th century, and refers to economists who have the idea that "When a supply-demand gap occurs, the government should mobilize fiscal and stimulate the economy".


The material introduced today "Milton Friedman's Theory of Japanese Economy (Japanese only)" emphasizes that "Friedman has repeatedly analyzed and commented on Japan" and the following phrases were impressive in the part "Economic freedom is a prerequisite for political freedom".


"Friedman argued that there was a close connection between economic and political freedom, and that a market economy was essential, not a planned economy, for social progress.


Economic freedom, such as freedom of movement and freedom of occupation, is not only an important right in itself, but a necessary, if not a sufficient, condition of political freedom.


In a society without financial freedom, activities against the government are physically impossible.


At the extreme, in a society where the government owns all means of production and plans economic activity, critics of the government will not be able to get any work and will not be able to advertise their ideas." (Unquote)
