Milton Friedman's Briefcase

Description
This briefcase was used by economist Milton Friedman, recipient of the 1976 Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences “for his achievements in the fields of consumption analysis, monetary history and theory and for his demonstration of the complexity of stabilization policy.” President Ronald Reagan based much of his economic policy during the 1980s on Friedman’s economic arguments. Friedman taught at the University of Chicago for over thirty years and advised many politicians. The Economist considered him “the most influential economist of the second half of the 20th century.”
