California Santa Barbara economics professor Lanny
Ebenstein taught a class comparing the work of John Maynard
Keynes, Friedrich Hayek, and Milton
Friedman. He drew on examples from capitalistic and
socialist economies and argued that while all three 20th century

Soviet Union, where government ran the whole economy and made all
of the economic decisions."
