Publisher's Summary

Dr. Arjo Klamer: Monetarism emerged in the 1960's under the leadership of Milton Friedman, who received the Nobel Prize in 1976. Friedman taught at the University of Chicago during this period, developing monetarism as a branch of Frank Knight's famous "Chicago School" of economics. Monetarists emphasize the role of money and the government's monetary policy in economic affairs; they vigorously defend the free market in their work. Alan Reynolds: Supply Side Economics, another modern branch of free market economics, emphasizes the harmful role of impediments to production (such as taxes). Robert A. Mundell is often considered the father of this modern school of economic thought. Supply side economics advocates government policies that would stimulate increased overall economic production, rather than to redistribute existing production.

Author did not take sides as what works.

A light review of what economic model worked at different times. Not convincing because author is not taking sides.

Simple and concise

If you could sum up Monetarism and Supply Side Economics in three words, what would they be?

Great 101 on learning monetary economics. It is filled with great references to push me to the next level - names, books and events that evolved this course of economic theory. Thanks for renewing my ambition to go the next level of correct economic thought. May Keynesian rest in peace!
