Excerpt

Milton Friedman was brought to Australia in April, 1975, by Constable & Bain, members of the Sydney Stock Exchange. This was Professor Friedman's first visit to Australia and was intended to heighten public awareness of the dangers of inflation and to point to possible cures consistent with the maintenance of individual liberty and free enterprise.

During his stay in Australia, Professor Friedman addressed gatherings in Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne, and held discussions with Reserve Bank and Treasury officials, government and opposition party members, business and academic leaders, as well as appearing on nationwide television.

By any standard, Professor Friedman's visit captured the imagination of the Australian people, achieving beyond expectations the aims of the sponsors.

This booklet contains transcripts of the two Sydney gatherings, namely a seminar conducted by the Graduate Business School Club and a public dinner hosted by Constable & Bain.
