Yesterday would have been the 100th birthday of Nobel Prize-winning conservative economist Milton Friedman, were he still with us ("Nobel Prize-winning" doesn't seem to carry the same weight it once did since Barack Obama won the award for doing absolutely nothing). Here are a few of his most memorable quotes:

"Concentrated power is not rendered harmless by the good intentions of those who create it."

"Governments never learn. Only people learn."

"Many people want the government to protect the consumer. A much more urgent problem is to protect the consumer from the government."

"If you put the federal government in charge of the Sahara Desert, in five years there would be a shortage of sand."

"I am in favor of cutting taxes under any circumstances and for any excuse, for any reason, whenever it is possible."
