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 issu

Money mischief : episodes in monetary history by Milton Friedman( Book )
35 editions published between 1992 and 2006 in 9 languages and held by 1,547 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
The optimum quantity of money, and other essays by Milton Friedman( Book )
70 editions published between 1964 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 1,456 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."--BOOK JACKET

The great contraction, 1929-1933 by Milton Friedman( Book )
57 editions published between 1963 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 979 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
