UChicago Faculty Protest New Milton Friedman Institute

From the Milton Friedman Institute website:
“The goal of the Institute is to build on the University’s existing leadership position and make the Milton Friedman Institute a primary intellectual destination for economics by creating a robust forum for engagement of our faculty and students with scholars and policymakers from around the world,” said President Robert J. Zimmer. “The Milton Friedman Institute will continue Chicago’s extraordinary tradition of creating new ideas that stimulate the academic world and innovative approaches that influence policy.”

The document speaks for itself, but the quality of its prose makes one wonder why professors of English would attach their names to it.
