Friedman and Schwartz concluded that the data ‘‘decisively support treating the rate of change series [of the money supply] as conforming to the reference cycle positively with a long lead’’ (M. Friedman and Schwartz 1963a, p. 36). That is, faster money growth tends to be followed by increases in output above trend, and slowdowns in money growth tend to be followed by declines in output.
