NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- Milton Friedman, the Nobel Prize-winning economist who helped shape modern free market economics, died Thursday in San Francisco. He was 94.
A spokesman for the Milton and Rose D. Friedman Foundation confirmed the news to CNN. The cause was heart failure, according to Reuters.
I find that hard to believe. I didn't go to the University of Chicago or anything, but, as far as I know, Milton Friedman didn't even have a heart.
