Abstract

This paper provides a reappraisal of the monetarist counter-revolution. The paper introduces a novel distinction between "theoretical" and "empirical" monetarism. Theoretical monetarism is identified as a critique of the IS/LM transmission mechanism. However, the IS/LM can be readily modified to accommodate this criticism. Empirical monetarism is identified with Friedman's business cycle research program. It was this latter program that was the principal source of contention, having theoretical and policy implications that were diametrically opposed to Keynesianism.
