His [the author's] research shows both how easily monetary policy can be led astray by dubious economic theories, and how difficult it is to change direction once a policy has been established...This book contains much information and insight about Federal Reserve policymaking and,...I recommend it to readers intereste in the macroeconomic history of the 1970s or the history of Federal Reserve policymaking in general. -- David C. Wheelock, The Journal of Economic History

Mayer has filled a considerable gap in our knowledge with this path-breaking study...No one in future should write on this topic without consulting it. -- David Laidler, Economic Record

Monetary Policy and the Great Inflation in the United States is a very enlightening description of how monetary policy lead to the Great Inflation.
