"I cannot pretend that the present version is the finished treatise that I had in mind (or in youthful dreams) in the earlier years of teaching the course. But it is a much expanded and, I hope, improved version. I have filled in four of the six gaps that I enumerated in the preface to the initial version. The two I have not filled in are industrial organization for reasons given at the end of chapter 6 and the theory of general equilibrium, because there are such good extant expositions of the classical Walrasian general equilibrium approach and I am not competent to present a succinct yet faithful exposition of the more recent general equilibrium developments, particularly in the field of growth models. In addition, I rather suspect that these developments are as yet in a preliminary and unsatisfactory state." – Milton Friedman, from the preface to the revised edition

Steven G. Medema is professor of economics at the University of Colorado, Denver. He is editor of Transaction’s Classics in Economics series.Review :
“Friedman’s exposition is the best nonmathematical treatment I have seen... [T]his collection and elaboration of some of Friedman’s ideas is a very valuable supplement to standard graduate theory texts. I believe that the state of economic thought would be advanced by a wide reading of these notes.”
—Roger F. Miller, The American Economic Review
