Milton Friedman is Responsible for Scarcity

Should we be surprised that the Milton Friedman Institute at the University of Chicago is opposed by the likes of Marshall Sahlins?  I happily farm it out to Brad DeLong:

Sahlins’s claims that it was "the market-industrial system [which]
institutes scarcity"… seemed to indicate a total,
willful, and culpable ignorance of practically all of the non-market
settled agricultural societies of the past ten thousand years.

By the way, guess where these institutes are located?
