Dallas Fed CEO Richard Fisher and Milton Friedman discuss everything from globalization's impact to boxers vs. briefs.

Uncle Milty Gets Down with Dallas Fed

Man, this is like The Basement Tapes of economics: Today, the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas made available a never-before-released interview between the late Nobel Laureate economist Milton Friedman and Dallas Fed president and CEO Richard Fisher. Says the Dallas Fed's media release: "Friedman and Fisher discuss a myriad of topics, including globalization, China, the Federal Reserve, free trade, government spending and education reform." (Note to press-release scribe: When you use "myriad," you don't "a" and "of." Trust me. I know. Ask around.)

The interview is available here as a video, a podcast and as embeddable YouTube clips. They're still working on the coloring book and the action figures. But the soundtrack is currently available here. And it's awesome, no joke. --Robert Wilonsky
