Just saw this via Lucianne.com:
In a letter to U. of C. President Robert Zimmer, 101 professors—about 8 percent of the university's full-time faculty—said they feared that having a center named after the conservative, free-market economist [Milton Friedman] could "reinforce among the public a perception that the university's faculty lacks intellectual and ideological diversity."
I wholeheartedly agree with Columbia economics professor Jagdish Bhagwati:
"It is nonsensical to object. . . . Chicago should be proud it has someone like Milton on its rolls," he said. "Anybody who can claim that Milton was not one of the major thinkers of his time is crazy."
