Statement on Passing of Milton Friedman

Secretary Condoleezza Rice
Hanoi, Vietnam
November 17, 2006

With the passing of Milton Friedman, a great Nobel Laureate in Economics, I have lost a great friend and the nation has lost a one-of-a kind leader and intellect. In addition to being one of the brightest intellectual lights of our nation, Milton was warm, funny, and irrepressible. He was a source of great support to me during my time as Provost at Stanford University and continued to be a friend and advisor when I returned to government. My thoughts and prayers go out to his remarkable wife Rose. She was a full partner in all that he did. We all share her loss.
