Very readable summary of Friedman's monetary economics.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Money Mischief (A Harvest/HBJ book) (Paperback)
The historical episodes that Friedman includes are not perhaps the most interesting. He does not offer his views, for example, on the Great Depression, the collapse of Bretton Woods or the fallout of Japan's bubble economy. Nevertheless, Friedman is one of the most readable economists particularly when he is discussing his monetarist views. Lively, informative, controversial and entertaining - few economists can match him in this way. Whether you agree or disagree with Friedman this book is a useful one to read because few understand monetary economics better than its author.
