So, if one is to write a monetary history that is scientific in the strictly positivist sense, the title must be construed quite literally as the chronicling of quantitative variations in a selected monetary aggregate and the measurable effects of these variations on other quantifiable economic variables, such as the price level and real output. However, even Friedman and Schwartz’s Monetary History must occasionally emerge from the bog of statistical analysis and address human motivation in order to explain the economic 56Friedman and Schwartz, A Monetary History, p.

Rothbard, “Only One Heartbeat Away,” The Libertarian Forum 6 (September 1974): 5. 53Mises, Theory and History, p. 183. : Princeton University Press, 1963). 55See, for example, North, Growth and Welfare in the American Past, p. 11, n. 6. ”56 Thus, in effect, the behavior of the unmotivated money supply takes center stage in this tome of 808 pages including appendices. ”57 Now Friedman and Schwartz certainly do not, and would not, deny that movements in the money supply are caused by the purposeful actions of motivated human beings.
