Mises wrote this book for the ages, and it remains the most spirited, thorough, and scientifically rigorous treatise on money to ever appear. It made his reputation across Europe and established him as the most important economist of his age.
We think this Mises Institute edition is the most beautiful, by far, of any edition in print. It is the first English edition, complete with an explanatory foreword by Murray Rothbard and a preface by Douglas French. The size, look, and feel are just perfect, at once classic and very modern, in a case-wrapped hardback. And the price beats everything.
This classic treatise on monetary theory remains the definitive book on the foundations of monetary theory, and the first really great integration of microeconomics and macroeconomics. As Rothbard points out in his introduction to “the best book on money ever written,” economists have yet to absorb all its lessons.
