Faith-based economics buys its temple

If economics has strayed from a scientific to a faith-based endeavor, the late Milton Freidman is surely one of its high priests.

This spring his old academic home, the University of Chicago, announced plans for a $200 million economics institute to be named after him.

Guess where the institute is to be housed?

Would you believe ….

I kid you not. Follow the link above.
