About the Course

This course tours Ludwig von Mises’ classic work, The Theory of Money & Credit. We focus on Mises’ two crucial achievements in the book: (1) His unification of “micro” and “macro” by successfully applying the modern subjective theory of value to money, and (2) his development of (what we now call) Austrian business cycle theory. The course showcases not only Mises’ brilliance as a novel thinker, but also his excellent command of the literature and his selection of the best ideas from other schools.
