re: Positivist Crime

Lew, it should be pointed out that Milton Friedman’s famous book, Essays in Positive Economics, does not contain a single positivist essay. They are all normative essays imploring economists to adopt the Chicago School’s cult of positivism as their methodology. It’s a good bet that Friedman always equated “Chicago School” with nothing more than the methods of one Milton Friedman.
