Free cake to celebrate free-market economist Friedman's 100th birthday Tuesday night in Boise

Milton Friedman died in 2006, but the University of Chicago economist who won a Nobel Prize is revered in free-market circles.

The Idaho Freedom Foundation is serving light appetizers and birthday cake at 7 p.m. at Boise's Hilton Garden Inn, 7699 W Spectrum Street., near the Edwards Theater complex.

The film "Free or Equal" will be shown and a guest speaker will make brief remarks on free markets.

Organizers are asking revelers to register in advance, if possible.
