This paper attempts to reconcile the conflicting findings of a particular line of research designed to test Monetarism on reduced form equations. Using the encompassing approach of Mizon, the lag lengths in inflation and unemployment equations are statistically determined and then decomposed into lags due to "systematic" and "error" dynamics. Several Monetarist propositions are tested on the systematic component of each equation. The data fail to reject the restrictions imposed by Monetarism in all cases.
