Scope for development?

It would seem possible to give readers a deeper and more balanced account of Milton Friedman's contribution, and of his influence on current economic thinking. Something could be said about his concept of "positive economics"; and it should be possible to give readers a broad indication in non-technical terms of the nature of his criticism of Keynesianism, and of his own policy proposals. Some attention might also be given to the need to ensure compliance with CZ standards of impartiality. I do hope that someone intends to do something further editing to meet those needs?
