A Book for POTUS

Larry Kudlow interviews President Bush:

MR. KUDLOW: I know you're a reader. You enjoy reading books. A mutual friend, Greg Mankiw, formerly your top economic adviser, had said that he had sent you a copy of Milton Friedman's old book, Capitalism And Freedom. I didn't know if you recall that. I was going to ask you if you had read the old Friedman book.

PRESIDENT BUSH: I have not read the old Friedman book yet. I appreciate Mankiw's generosity. I did have a conversation with Milton Friedman when I was out at--in Palo Alto, I think two weekends ago. He's a really interesting speaker. He's a smart guy.
