Description:
Rothbard's most famous monetary essay has influenced two generations of economists, investors, and business professionals. After presenting the basics of money and banking theory, the author traces the decline of the dollar from the 18th century to the present, and provides lucid critiques of central banking, New Deal monetary policy, Nixonian fiat money, and fixed exchange rates. He also provides a blueprint for a return to a 100 percent reserve gold standard.
