Capitalism and Freedom
[Read by Michael Edwards]

***#10 on National Review's List of the 100 Best Nonfiction Books of the Century***

Milton Friedman argues that the appropriate role of competitive capitalism occurs when the majority of our economic activity flows through private enterprise within a free market environment. This is unequivocally the most effective device for achieving economic freedom, as well as the necessary condition in which political freedom can be attained. Friedman's arguments are positively bold, enlightening, and impacting. Among the specific topics he addresses are ''The Control of Money,'' ''Fiscal Policy,'' ''Capitalism and Discrimination,'' and ''Social Welfare Measures.''

Design Fundamentals: Notes on Color Theory

Miss Color Theory class, again? That’s OK. You can borrow our notes.

 

Lucky for you, we didn’t miss a single class the entire semester so you’ll find all of the important points explained in the notes, along with the class assignments.

 

Sorry if you can’t read the handwriting sometimes, but there was a lot to cover. We went over all of the basics–how light works, ROYGBIV, RGB, CMYK, color wheels, how to choose colors and compose with colors, all of that stuff.

 

If it helps, we tried to include a lot of drawings because that’s how we remember things best.

 

Oh hey, to learn more, just go to the class website at www.design-fundamentals.com  or check out the “Notes on Color” pinner on Pinterest. The instructor put extra projects and exercises on the site, a bunch of cool links, recommended reading, that sort of thing.

 

Good luck! See you in Visual Elements and Principles of Composition class next semester.

Design Fundamentals: Notes on Visual Elements and Principles of Composition

Miss Visual Elements and Principles of Composition class, again? That’s OK. You can borrow our notes.


Lucky for you, we didn’t miss a single class the entire semester so you’ll find all of the important points explained in the notes, along with the class assignments.


How does a dot turn into a line to create a shape that makes up a composition? We covered that and more. You’ll see in the notes that we went over all of the basic elements of composition—dot, line, shape, texture, & pattern, color, and space—as well as the principles for composing the elements on flat surfaces (paper, canvas, screens) and in three dimensions. 


We had some pop quizzes in this class so we put those in the notes too so you can test yourself, even if it won’t count toward your actual grade.


If anything doesn’t make sense in the notes, just go to the class website at design-fundamentals.com. The instructor put extra projects and exercises on the site, a bunch of cool links, recommended reading, that sort of thing. Also, check out  our Pinterest boards at Pinterest.com/DSNFundamentals. You could spend hours looking through it all.


Good luck!

The Tyranny of the Status Quo
Free to Choose was an international best-seller in 1980. Its forceful message influenced a number of world leaders -- among them Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher. The Friedmans explained how free markets enable people to make the best use of their talents. In Tyranny of the Status Quo Milton and Rose Friedman describe a remarkable political phenomenon: the uniform tendency in government to reverse the declared policies of leaders whether left or right. In the first six to nine months following their election Reagan, Thatcher, and Mitterand, too, initiated big changes. Soon each was frustrated by the "Iron Triangle" which preserves the status quo. In the triangle's corners are the direct beneficiaries of laws, the bureaucrats who thrive on them, the politicians who seek votes. Would Ronald Reagan be reelected? In successive chapters the Friedmans considered the public perception of Reagan's progress or lack of it, in respect of government spending and deficits, taxation, defense, inflation, unemployment, domestic security, and education. Margaret Thatcher won another six to nine months. Would Reagan also have a second chance? This is an important book for all Americans, left, middle, right. The Friedmans stress that there are only two ways that the general interests -- as opposed to the parochial special interests that dominate the Iron Triangle -- can be effective. One is by actions of the President and Vice-President, who are the only officials elected by all voters; the second is through Constitutional Amendments. Once again, the Friedmans document the many ways that interfering with the free market reduces the opportunities of all the people.

Design Fundamentals: Notes on Type
Design Fundamentals: Notes on Type looks like a design student’s sketchbook with handwritten notes and full-color, hand-drawn illustrations. But it’s more than that. This gorgeously illustrated “notebook” is a full-blown typography course in disguise. Young designers are lured in by the lush graphics and quirky layout only to discover by the end of the book that they’ve learned all of the key concepts taught in a foundational course on type. They’ll learn about the history of letterforms, the anatomy and physiology of type, the basics of measurements and spacing, how to recognize and choose type for design projects, and more. 

Fun and fast-paced, this creative notebook isn’t required reading, it’s desired reading; and it’s the third in a series of Design Fundamentals books that students will want to keep and enjoy long after they’ve mastered these basic building blocks of design.

This book includes:
• Core instruction on the history, anatomy, and structure of type
• Direction on the basics of measurement and spacing: leading, kerning, indents, and line lengths both in text and display sizes, and optical measurement considerations.
•  Examination of the use, mood, and “voice” of type as seen in creative work and professional examples
• Exercises and projects for practice and concept development
• Strange and delightful illustrations created specifically for this book (to inspire action)
• A companion website stocked with additional projects, a bibliography, glossary, and links to additional visual examples.

Two Lucky People: Memoirs
In Two Lucky People, Rose and Milton Friedman provide a memorable and lively account of their lives, the people they knew, and the work they shared. Their involvement with world leaders and many of this century's most important public policy issues moves their memoir beyond the merely personal and makes fascinating reading for anyone interested in the history of twentieth-century ideas.

"The Friedmans come across as the last Enlightenment thinkers in a post-modern world. . . . This is a book that restores your faith in reasoned discourse. . . . There really are people who believe in scholarly exchange as a way to discover truth."--David Brooks, New York Times Book Review

"The Friedmans are a feisty couple, who clearly delight in their lives and each other. And shining through their reticence, and their conservatism, is a decency that even liberals will recognize."--Milton and Judith Viorst, Washington Post Book World

"This engaging book recounts the life and contributions of one of America's most influential writers and economists in the second half of the twentieth century. And her husband's no slouch either. . . . An indispensable guide through the evolution of economic thought."--Stephen Moore, National Review

"A thought-provoking book and one rich in history, the personal history of the Friedmans . . . and the cultural and political history of our country."--Steve Huntley, Chicago Sun-Times Books

"[Two Lucky People] is almost like a letter from a couple of old friends--a couple of old friends who had a long, compelling intellectual journey, came to know some of the great world leaders of this century, and had 60 years of happy, supportive marriage."--N. Gregory Mankiw, Fortune

"A rich autobiographical and historical panorama."--William P. Kucewicz, Wall Street Journal
