Milton Friedman on Crises - Dictionary of Arguments

Brocker I 396

>Federal Reserve Policy
Brocker I 397
After the American stock market crash of 1929, they had not tried hard enough to prevent the collapse of the banks; the related thereto annihilitaion of the accounts had reduced the money supply by 20 percent and the collapse of demand for goods and economic activity was thus inevitable. FriedmanVsKeynesianism, FriedmanVsKeynes.
>Keynesianism, >J.M. Keynes.
Solution/Friedman: a policy of steady money supply growth as a necessary and sufficient condition of macroeconomic stability, i.e. above all to preserve the value of money. However, this concept was only implemented in some countries in the early 1970s after Keynesian stability policy (a constant variation in taxes and government spending) failed due to the problem of rising inflation rates.
