You've never even opened Freidman and Schwartz, huh?

LoL Friedman is such a has been.

He wouldn't even pass prelims these days at a solid LRM.Friedman was a trained Mathematical statistician and has actually made published contributions to statistics. Not one of your reg monkeys can do that right now. And it was Friedman's Monetary History that killed of Kindelberger style narrative history in favor of more mathematically rigorous methods
