In Memory of Milton Friedman

Milton Friedman in his 1967 presidential address to the American Economic Association:

"Every major contraction in this country has been either produced by monetary disorder or greatly exacerbated by monetary disorder. Every major inflation has been produced by monetary expansion."

Exhibit A: There was no inflation in the U.S. until after the creation of the Federal Reserve.

Have you considered mapping this to the world GDP. Prices inflate along side production and population growth.
