Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

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

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
