Milton Friedman on Currency Policy - Dictionary of Arguments

Brocker I 398
Currency Policy/Friedman: according to Friedman, no monetary policy is needed to regulate international monetary relations: if exchange rates are allowed to fluctuate freely, central banks no longer have to intervene in the currency markets in order to keep the relative prices of national currencies constant. Flexible exchange rates are then adjusted in the free play of market forces in such a way that free world trade is promoted, any differences in inflation between the nation states are compensated for and no country suffers major disruptions to its international competitiveness.
, >Monetarism.
In the 1960s, money supply management and flexible exchange rates were widely accepted economic policy concepts.
