This elaboration of the writings and statements of Milton Friedman is intended to create an economic system that moves the subject along theory-, fact-, and policy-oriented lines. Items directly attributable to Friedman are used in combination with an awareness of the unique breadth of his experience connected to statistical matters, and his work with Wesley C. Mitchell and others. In addition, some of the author's experiences dating back to the 1950s are used to reconstruct theory and bring in some topics Friedman did not consider.
