Milton and Rose Friedman

An Uncommon Couple

Economics Cassette Series

The Economics Cassette Series was a 215-tape, subscription-based series produced by Instructional Dynamics Incorporated (IDI) between 1969 and 1978. The biweekly series was composed of interviews with Milton Friedman during which he commented on current economic events, and thus was a sort of companion to Friedman's Newsweek columns. The programs were recorded in either Chicago or Vermont, with William Clark of the Chicago Tribune conducting the interviews in Chicago and Rose Friedman stepping in for the Vermont interviews. The series ended after IDI ran into financial difficulties.
