Free to choose : a personal statement by Milton Friedman( Book )

Capitalism and freedom by Milton Friedman( Book )

219 editions published between 1962 and 2014 in 18 languages and held by 4,385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Capitalism and Freedom, economist Milton Friedman argues that political and economic freedom are inextricably linked, promoting laissez faire and individual choice over government intervention in markets through tariffs, subsidies and regulations. The book, along with Friedman's other writing, is credited with reviving conservative economic theory and influencing policies designed to decrease government spending following the Great Depression. In so doing, it put forth many ideas--for example, a flat income tax and school vouchers--that feature heavily in political discourse today
A monetary history of the United States, 1867-1960 by Milton Friedman( Book )

84 editions published between 1961 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 2,315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Writing in the June 1965 issue of theEconomic Journal, Harry G. Johnson begins with a sentence seemingly calibrated to the scale of the book he set himself to review: "The long-awaited monetary history of the United States by Friedman and Schwartz is in every sense of the term a monumental scholarly achievement--monumental in its sheer bulk, monumental in the definitiveness of its treatment of innumerable issues, large and small-- monumental, above all, in the theoretical and statistical effort and ingenuity that have been brought to bear on the solution of complex and subtle economic issues. Friedman and Schwartz marshaled massive historical data and sharp analytics to support the claim that monetary policy -steady control of the money supply- matters profoundly in the management of the nation's economy, especially in navigating serious economic fluctuations. In their influential chapter 7, The Great Contraction--which Princeton published in 1965 as a separate paperback - they address the central economic event of the century, the Depression. According to Hugh Rockoff, writing in January 1965: "If Great Depressions could be prevented through timely actions by the monetary authority (or by a monetary rule), as Friedman and Schwartz had contended, then the case for market economies was measurably stronger." Milton Friedman won the Nobel Prize in Economics in 2000 for work related to A Monetary History as well as to his other Princeton University Press book, A Theory of the Consumption Function (1957)."--P. 4 de la couv
Essays in positive economics by Milton Friedman( Book )

86 editions published between 1953 and 2001 in 4 languages and held by 1,749 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper is concerned primarily with certain methodological problems that arise in constructing the "distinct positive science" that John Neville Keynes called for, in particular, the problem how to decide whether a suggested hypothesis or theory should be tentatively accepted as part of the "body of systematized knowledge concerning what is."

The optimum quantity of money, and other essays by Milton Friedman( Book )

72 editions published between 1964 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 1,450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Taken as a whole, The Optimum Quantity of Money provides a comprehensive view of the body of monetary theory developed in leading centers of monetary analysis. This work is essential reading for economists and graduate students in the field. The volume will be no less important for practicing business and banking personnel as well. The new statement by Michael Bordo a student of Friedman's and an expert in the field, provides a sense of where the field now stands in the economy and academy."--Jacket

Money mischief : episodes in monetary history by Milton Friedman( Book )

15 editions published between 1992 and 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nobel Prize-winner Milton Friedman makes clear once and for all that no one is immune from monetary economics--that is, from the effects of its theory and its practices. He demonstrates through historical events the mischief that can result from misunderstanding the monetary system--how, for example, the work of two obscure Scottish chemists destroyed the presidential prospects of William Jennings Bryan and how Franklin D. Roosevelt's decision to appease a few senators from the American West helped communism triumph in China. In Money Mischief Dr. Friedman discusses the creation of value: from stones to feathers to gold. He outlines the central role of monetary theory and shows how it can act to ignite or deepen inflation, as one instance. He explains, in layman's English, what the present monetary system in the United States--a system without historical precedent--means for your paycheck and savings book as well as for the global economy

Milton Friedman's monetary framework : a debate with his critics by Milton Friedman( Book )

32 editions published between 1974 and 1990 in 3 languages and held by 1,050 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In response to widespread interest in a formal complete statement analyzing aspects of the money-income relationship and clarification of his quantity theory, Milton Friedman in 1970 published "A Theoretical Framework for Monetary Analysis," and a year later "A Monetary Theory of Nominal Income," both in the Journal of Political Economy. A combined version of these essays, first published by the National Bureau of Economic Research, begins this volume. Because his statement was important and controversial both as a commentary on the history of economic thought and as a theoretical contribution in its own right, the Journal of Political Economy in 1972 presented critical reviews from noted monetary theorists, including Karl Brunner and Allan H. Meltzer, James Tobin, Paul Davidson, and Don Patinkin. Their studies, which are printed in the present volume, focus on substantive issues, covering a variety of topics. All of their major points are discussed in Friedman's reply, which clarifies and expands upon his original themes and introduces interesting new material. Thus the synthesis of his two articles, the critical comments, and his response, together with an introduction by Robert J. Gordon, are combined in one volume for the convenience of scholars and students

The great contraction, 1929-1933 by Milton Friedman( Book )

55 editions published between 1963 and 2009 in English and held by 952 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Friedman and Schwartz's A Monetary History of the United States, 1867-1960, published in 1963, stands as one of the most influential economics books of the twentieth century. A landmark achievement, the book marshalled massive historical data and sharp analytics to support the claim that monetary policy - steady control of the money supply - matters profoundly in the management of the nation's economy, especially in navigating serious economic fluctuations. The chapter, entitled The Great Contraction, 1929-33, addressed the central economic event of the century, the Great Depression. Published as a stand-alone paperback in 1965, The Great Contraction, 1929-1933 argued that the Federal Reserve could have stemmed the severity of the Depression, but failed to exercise its role of managing the monetary system and ameliorating banking panics.The book served as a clarion call to the monetarist school of thought by emphasizing the importance of the money supply in the functioning of the economy - a concept that has come to inform the actions of central banks worldwide. This edition of the original text includes a new preface by Anna Jacobson Schwartz, as well as a new introduction by the economist Peter Bernstein. It also reprints comments from the current Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke, originally made on the occasion of Milton Friedman's 90th birthday, on the enduring influence of Friedman and Schwartz's work and vision
