The Theory of Money & Credit

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. Mises shows how money had its origin in the market, and how its value is based on its usefulness as a commodity in exchange. In a step-by-step manner, Mises presents the case for sound money with no inflation, and presents the beginnings of a full-scale business cycle theory. This edition includes Mises's early blueprint, improved later in life, for a return to a fully backed gold sta...

The Theory of Money and Credit

“It is impossible to grasp the meaning of the idea of sound money if one does not realize that it was devised as an instrument for the protection of civil liberties against despotic inroads on the part of governments.” – from The Theory of Money and CreditOriginally published in 1912, Ludwig von Mises’s The Theory of Money and Credit remains today one of economic theory’s most influential and controversial treatises. Von Mises’s examination into monetary theory changed forever the world of economic thought when he successfully integrated “macroeconomics” into “microeconomics” —previously deemed an impossible task —as well as offering explanations into the origin, value and future of money.One hundred years later, von Mises and the Austrian school of economic theory are still fiercely debated by world economists in their search for the solution to America’s current financial crisis. His theorems continue to inspire politicians and market experts who aim to raise up the common man and reduce the financial power of governments. In a preface added in 1952, von Mises urges the people of the world to see economic truth:“The great inflations of our age are not acts of God. They are man-made or, to say it bluntly, government-made. They are the off-shoots of do...

On the Manipulation of Money and Credit: Three Treatises on Trade-Cycle Theory (Lib Works Ludwig Von Mises PB)

The three treatises in On the Manipulation of Money and Credit were written in German between 1923 and 1931. Together they include some of Mises's most important contributions to monetary and trade-cycle theories and constitute a precursor to Mises's major work, Human Action. In the first essay, "Stabilization of the Monetary Unit from the Viewpoint of Theory," written during the period of German hyperinflation, Mises discusses the consequences of the fluctuating purchasing power of paper money. He explores such ideas as the outcome of inflation, that is, the result of the increase in the amount of money, and an emancipation of monetary value from the influence of government.The second essay, "Monetary Stabilization and Cyclical Policy," written in 1928, presents Mises's business-cycle theory. Published on the eve of the Great Depression, the treatise critiques schemes for stabilizing prices and for "measuring" purchasing power.The third piece, "The Causes of the Economic Crisis," is a speech Mises delivered in 1931 exploring the nature and role of the market and cyclical changes in business conditions. He assesses the causes and effects of the crisis of the time and discusses various potential solutions to the problems of the Depression.Ludwig von Mises (1881–1973) was the lea...

Ludwig von Mises's The Theory of Money and Credit (The Macat Library)

Ludwig Von Mises’s 1912 contribution to the theory of monetary policy and the current prevailing consensus in modern economic liberalism, The Theory of Money and Credit, was a milestone achievement. The author’s familiarity with the historical literature on banking and credit allows him to present a coherent theoretical structure that links private exchange between individuals, business and banks to condition the markets affecting money and credit. Through its wider influence on liberal thinkers and politicians, the Theory of Money and Credit has become a classic reference for those seeking to understand the advance of economic liberalism since the 20th century.

A History of Money and Banking in the United States: The Colonial Era to World War II

In what is sure to become the standard account, Rothbard traces inflations, banking panics, and money meltdowns from the Colonial Period through the mid-20th century to show how government's systematic war on sound money is the hidden force behind nearly all major economic calamities in American history. Never has the story of money and banking been told with such rhetorical power and theoretical vigor. You will treasure this volume. From the introduction by Joseph Salerno: "Rothbard employs the Misesian approach to economic history consistently and dazzlingly throughout the volume to unravel the causes and consequences of events and institutions ranging over the course of U.S. monetary history, from the colonial times through the New Deal era. One of the important benefits of Rothbard's unique approach is that it naturally leads to an account of the development of the U.S. monetary system in terms of a compelling narrative linking human motives and plans that often-times are hidden, and devious, leading to outcomes that sometimes are tragic. And one will learn much more about monetary history from reading this exciting story than from poring over reams of statistical analysis. Although its five parts were written separately, this volume presents a relative integrated narrative, ...

Study Guide to the Theory of Money and Credit

Consider the timing of this wonderful study guide to the best book ever written on money and credit. The book itself was written 100 years ago. The world economy is in the throes of another financial and debt crisis. Keynesianism has completely failed. Fiat money has too. Above it all stands Mises's masterwork, laying out the whole correct theory of money: it should be sound, solid, and market controlled. Here is the guide to the book that still has a voice after 100 years, and that voice is stronger than ever. Mises wrote it as a warning against central banking, predicting that this institution would produce more instability than ever before — plus inflation, debt, and deep danger to the pillars of prosperity. He was right in every case. In this new guide, Robert Murphy takes the reader through Mises's book one chapter at a time. He provides summaries, points for discussion, and study questions, and he assesses the book in light of modern history. Most of all, Mises's book teaches the theory of money, and with Professor Murphy's guide, you will understand where money comes from, what it does, how it is managed in a market, and what government does to destroy it. Most people agree that this was not only a great book but perhaps the greatest monetary treatise ever written. The...

Theory of Money and Fiduciary Media

As the Federal Reserve and other central banks run wild, it’s time to reconsider a great work by Ludwig von Mises that is as fresh and relevant today as when it appeared a century ago. The first of Mises’s major works, Theory of Money and Credit was published in 1912 when Mises was barely 30 years old. To commemorate the centennial of this important work, the Mises Institute presents Theory of Money and Fiduciary Media: Essays in Celebration of the Centennial, edited by Jörg Guido Hülsmann. The title of this collection of new essays reflects a more accurate translation of Mises’s original title, Theorie des Geldes und der Umlaufsmittel. This new collection of thirteen original essays comes from a 2012 symposium at the Austrian Scholars Conference in Auburn, Alabama, and provides wide-ranging views and analysis. It features the latest from established Misesian scholars such as Hülsmann and Joseph Salerno along with fresh perspectives from young Misesians such as Philipp Bagus, Malavika Nair, and Matthew McCaffrey. Attacked and ignored in the years after its initial publication, Mises’s work on money has only gained influence in recent decades. His theories are still attacked by inflationists today. But Mises’s contribution cannot be ignored, and as noted by Hülsmann ...

Money, Bank Credit, and Economic Cycles

Can the market fully manage the money and banking sector? Jesús Huerta de Soto, professor of economics at the Universidad Rey Juan Carlos, Madrid, has made history with this mammoth and exciting treatise that it has and can again, without inflation, without business cycles, and without the economic instability that has characterized the age of government control. Such a book as this comes along only once every several generations: a complete comprehensive treatise on economic theory. It is sweeping, revolutionary, and devastating--not only the most extended elucidation of Austrian business cycle theory to ever appear in print but also a decisive vindication of the Misesian-Rothbardian perspective on money, banking, and the law. Jörg Guido Hülsmann has said that this is the most significant work on money and banking to appear since 1912, when Mises's own book was published and changed the way all economists thought about the subject. Its five main contributions: a wholesale reconstruction of the legal framework for money and banking, from the ancient world to modern times, an application of law-and-economics logic to banking that links microeconomic analysis to macroeconomic phenomena, a comprehensive critique of fractional-reserve banking from the point of view of history, ...

The Great Transformation: The Political and Economic Origins of Our Time

In this classic work of economic history and social theory, Karl Polanyi analyzes the economic and social changes brought about by the "great transformation" of the Industrial Revolution. His analysis explains not only the deficiencies of the self-regulating market, but the potentially dire social consequences of untempered market capitalism. New introductory material reveals the renewed importance of Polanyi's seminal analysis in an era of globalization and free trade.
