Capital-based business cycle theory identifies monetary mismanagement as a major source of economy-wide distortions in the intertemporal allocation of resources by focusing on the relative-price effects - and the corresponding quantity adjustments - of a monetary disturbance, as compared to tracking the movements in macroeconomic aggregates that conceal those relative-price effects.
