  THE CHICAGO SCHOOL
The "Chicago School" is perhaps one of the better known American "schools" of economics.
It was the Second Chicago School that is often accused of being the modern version of Manchester School liberalism (or, as some maintain, the more conservative tradition of American apologism).
For the longest time, Chicago was the only school in America not swept by the Keynesian Revolution (the presence of Lloyd A. Metzler for a brief period on the faculty was exceptional).

 Chicago school (economics) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Chicago school of economics is a school of thought favoring free-market economics practiced at and disseminated from the University of Chicago.
The school of thought is not the same as the Department of Economics at the University of Chicago, widely considered one of the world’s foremost economics departments, having fielded more Nobel Prize winners and John Bates Clark medalists in economics than any other university.
Chicago School theories lay behind much of the policies of the World Bank from the mid-1980s to the mid-1990s, during which time large portions of the state-owned companies in many Third World countries were privatized.

 Architecture: The First Chicago School
It is no mere accident that in the 1880s Chicago produced a group of architects, now known as the “First Chicago School,” whose work would have a profound effect upon architecture.
The early structures of the First Chicago School, such as the Montauk and the Auditorium, had traditional load-bearing walls of brick and stone, but it was the metal skeleton frame that allowed the architects of the First Chicago School to perfect their signature edifice, the skyscraper.
The eclipse of the First Chicago School by an architecture based upon the classical as interpreted by the École des Beaux-Arts was signaled by the World's Columbian Exposition held in Chicago in 1893.

The Chicago School, as it became known, provided a substantial part of the foundation for the intellectual reformulation, both in the United States and around the world.
Through most of the 1950s, the Chicago School remained obscure and unfashionable, at least as far as the public was concerned.
The Chicago School was derided for being dogmatic, rigid, and reductionist.

Friedman, the 1976 winner of the Nobel prize in economics, was arguably the greatest and most influential economist of the 20th century.
Together with other University of Chicago economists, including George Stigler, Friedman's cogent and persuasive views on the virtues of free markets spawned the so-called "Chicago School" of economics.

 Chicago school (sociology) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In sociology and, later, criminology, the Chicago School (sometimes described as the Ecological School) refers to the first major body of works emerging during the 1920s and 1930s specialising in urban sociology, and the research into the urban environment by combining theory and ethnographic fieldwork in Chicago, now applied elsewhere.
While involving scholars at several Chicago area universities, the term is often used interchangeably to refer to the University of Chicago's sociology department—one of the oldest and one of the most prestigious.
The Chicago School is a Positivist School, applying scientific techniques to the collection and deductive analysis of data to explain different types of individual and social phenomena.

 Institute for Justice: School Choice Cases: Chicago School Choice
For low-income youngsters in the worst schools within these districts, the odds of dropping out, winding up on public assistance, or being victimized by (or arrested for) serious crimes are far higher than the odds of graduating and going on to college or a productive livelihood.
In the same neighborhoods in which the public schools are failing so miserably, community private schools provide superior educational opportunities to low-income children in safe and wholesome environments, usually for a portion of the cost of public schools.
But all private school choice proposals are vigorously opposed by the education establishment and its allies, with massive special interest resources at their disposal.

 cbs2chicago.com - Gov.'s Ad Shoot At Chicago School 'Probably Wrong'   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
Chicago Public Schools spokesman Peter Cunningham said that while the policy doesn't specifically ban political ads from being filmed at public schools, "it's probably wrong to do," according to a story on the Chicago Tribune's web site Thursday night.
TomDas Revollo, principal of the elementary school where the ads were filmed, did not return a phone call from the Tribune seeking comment about the ethics policy and whether he had been contacted by school district officials.
The ethics policy was adopted by the Chicago school board in June 2004 and states that: "Employees shall not intentionally misappropriate any board property or resources by engaging in any prohibited political activity for the benefit of any campaign for elective office or any political organization."
