von Mises, Ludwig: "The Causes of the Economic Crisis"
» 917.8 KiB - 832 hits - 14 May 09
Here is the evidence that Mises foresaw and warned against the breakdown of the German mark, as well as the market crash of 1929 and the depression that followed. He presents his business cycle theory in its most elaborate form, applies it to the prevailing conditions, and discusses the policies that governments undertake that make recessions worse. He recommends a path for monetary reform that would eliminate business cycles and provide the basis for a sustainable prosperity. See especially pp149-150, "Revised currency school theory"
von Mises, Ludwig: "The Theory of Money and Credit"
» 24.2 MiB - 1,649 hits - 14 May 09
This classic treatise on monetary theory remains the definitive 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.
