David Brooks' 170 degree turn

Take a look at this video of a discussion between Milton Friedman and David Brooks (and two others). Turn to the 38:15 mark.

Wow! Has he changed! I'm not talking about looking younger (we all looked different in 1990) ... I'm talking about statements like:

  • "regulations must be minimal"
  • "The FDA has made outcomes worse, not better"
  • "Everyone agrees that the minimum wage destroys employment opportunities for poor people"

I suppose this change is correlated with switching his employment from WSJ to NYT?
