UPDATE: Methinks Michael Bordo is misquoted in the New York Times obituary. Let me fix it:
AfterEven before Mr. Friedman’s death in 2006, Mrs. Schwartz “became the standard-bearer” of Friedmanmonetarism, said Michael D. Bordo, a professor of economics at Rutgers University and for decades a Schwartz collaborator himself.
Though “not a deep theorist,”"A superb analyst and empiricist," he said, Mrs. Schwartz was “ probablyamong the very best womanmonetarist economist*s* of the 20th century.”
