The Theory of Money and Credit (Paperback)
From one of the preeminent theorists of the acclaimed Austrian school of economics, "The Theory of Money and Credit" represents a major contribution to the science of economics. Von Mises examines the value of money, how it can be measured, and the effects of credit and monetary policy at the nation-state level. Von Mises is well known for advocating a return to the gold standard as a way to eliminate the growth and recession cycles. Given the current economic crises, many people who want a better understanding of economics are turning back to this classic work in order to be better informed on the implications of monetary and credit policy.
