How does Tom Sargent manage to write a 35 page essay on free banking and not cite George Selgin or Larry White???

Mike Sproul was the only advocate of real bills I could remember coming across on the internet.

Sargent writes that Milton Friedman was “tempted” to change his mind. I don’t think he was merely tempted, he actually did change his mind. This paper from George Selgin doesn’t mention the “Chicago Plan” featuring 100% reserves, but does indicate that he ceased to see the necessity of a role for government/central bank.

Does anyone have a link to Sargent’s companion paper as described in that piece? I could not find it on his website.

I have read thousands of papers… Sargents’ makes me want to read more of his. Well researched, well constructed, insightful, and thought-provoking. Makes me think the critisisms above about not taking into consideration other papers was done on purpose.
